Gold, Guns and Piles of Cash Found in Isil’s Libya stronghold
The Telegraph published an article reporting that Libyan fighters found stolen jewelry, suitcases stuffed with cash and an arsenal of weapons in a jihadist storehouse in the city of Sirte.
The valuables are believed to have been looted from local homes, especially from residences of wealthy people who fled when Isil [ISIS] captured the town in May last year.
The discovery came as militia forces fought to finally drive Isil from its Libyan stronghold, which is also the birthplace of the former dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
