Italy to launch military operation in Syria
Italy is preparing a military operation in Libya, "to confront militants in advance against the terrorist organization Islamic State" (IP), reports "Armenpress", citing the Italian media.
According to Corriere della Sera, the military mission, which will include ships patrolling the Mediterranean Sea, as well as "tornado" jets, which are ready to take off from Trapanii (Sicily Island) base, will be launched as soon as the request is received in accordance from the Libyan authorities.
Everything is dependent on the results of the Libyan national unity government formation.
The essential condition for any intervention is the Libya's request, as well as a relevant UN resolution, the newspaper noted, citing TASS.
