Libya, “Al-Qaeda was here”
We already reported the story of Al-Qaeda members with their Al-Qaeda flag fighting side-by-side the British [and for sure the American] forces in Sirt — Libya. Thanks to MOA who linked to an image showing the flag. But I have more, a video shows graphitis says “Al-Qaeda was here” [watch below] left by Al-Qaeda on the corners of Sirt-City. According to Algerian newspaper three Al-Qaeda battalions (names are: Taliban Battalion, Abu Salim Martyrs and the infamous “Al-Qaeda in North Africa” aka “AQIM”) fought against Gaddafi’s forces in Sirt. Al-Qaeda members used various arms, Russian machine guns and Belgian sniper-riffles, in addition to knives of swords they used against the wounded among members of Gaddafi forces.
