British special forces have corralled hundreds of Islamic State jihadis in ‘kill boxes’ in the besieged Libyan city of Sirte, but the desperate fanatics are using pregnant women and girls as human shields to prevent them storming the town.
Elite commandos from the SAS and SBS – the Special Boat Service – secretly co-ordinated attacks by land, sea and air to overpower IS fighters, retaking control of a crucial oil port in the terror group’s last bastion in Libya.
The British forces, working jointly with US Navy Seals, deployed drones and high-tech infra-red cameras to locate hundreds of jihadis who have run the city as an extremist caliphate for the past 18 months.
Reports are only now starting to emerge of how, last Saturday, during a surprise assault, the special forces working with the Libyan army, air force and coastguard guided fighter bombers and helicopter gunships on a series of raids that destroyed target buildings where there were clusters of IS militants, driving them into the open.
