"Исламское государство" в Ливии

Азия и Африка сегодня. 2016. № 10. С. 21-26.

Five years have passed since the beginning of the «Arab Spring» in the Middle East and North Africa. Those events were results of different socio-political processes, of major transformation in the region. Today dozens or even hundreds of studies are written about it. Many authors emphasize a rise of activity of new and old terrorist organizations and an increase the number of hotbeds of instability. The most dangerous is the phenomenon of «Islamic State» (IS), challenging the modern system of geopolitical and civilization relations, imposing itself as a «state» with its own ideology and representing a threat to the future world order. In this article we will touch upon the IS cell in Libya where, after the overthrow of the former regime of Muammar Gaddafi, a struggle has began both between the tribes and armed groups of former revolutionary and between different islamist groups.
