'Secret war' in Libya: Western covert operations against Islamic State group (part 2)

A new report in French daily Le Monde indicates that French special forces have been carrying out covert operations in Libya against jihadist targets. This coincides with increasing evidence that the US, Britain and France are acting unilaterally through small groups of forces in the country. Last week, a US air raid targeted a suspected terrorist, and Barack Obama has stated he will carry out strikes when necessary. Will it be enough to root out the jihadists?
