Islamic State fighters retreat from bases outside Derna, Libya

“Fighters belonging to the Islamic State’s arm in Libya have reportedly withdrawn from their positions on the outskirts of the city of Derna. Abu Bakr al Baghdadi’s loyalists were opposed by rival jihadists inside the city. Airstrikes by the Libyan Army, the US and Egypt have also repeatedly hit the so-called ‘caliphate’s’ fighting positions in the area over the past year and a half.”
