Islamic State militants on Friday reportedly took control of two radio stations in Libya, sacking all staff and broadcasting verses of Koran and IS propaganda contents, including speeches of IS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and the group’s spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani.
The two radio stations are “Free Voice” and “Radio Mikdashi”.
Some Jihadist groups’ social webpage also circulated pictures showing armed men sitting in the recording studio.
Reports also have it that the city council has also been taken over and made the sect’s headquarters in Libya.
The dogfight between the pro-secular army and Islamist militants in Libya unfortunately makes an ideal hotbed and recruiting ground for terrorism in the country.
Recall that on January an IS affiliate in Libya targeted the biggest hotel in the capital of Tripoli, killing nine people and injuring dozens.
