Italy prepares to defend oil pipeline from ISIS
Italy is prepared to do battle on Libyan shores to defend the oil pipeline but ….. only upon approval and initiative of The United Nations. It seems that Libya will not act on it’s on unless being guided by the hands of the U.N. If ISIS makes a move prior to decisions being reached, will Italy act on it’s own and fight ISIS to protect the oil pipeline? Read the latest reports.
As reported by The Independent:
The Italian media are saying that Italy is sending ships from its Navy towards the Libyan shores.
At this point it is not yet clear whether this is just a training expedition but it would seem Italy may be preparing for a direct action in Libya.
The soldiers of the Reggimento San Marco arrived in La Spezia in the middle of the night. They crossed the sleeping city and proceeded next to the Arsenal until they arrived at a military base where they found everything prepared for action.
Yesterday too saw the arrival in La Spezia of the Nave San Giorgio, which had never been there before and which is prepared for an amphibian action.
The ship was kept rather hidden and today, after lunchtime, having taken in soldiers and equipment, it sailed.
It would seem the ship’s next stop is Augusta in Sicily where it will take on reinforcements.
