On October 8th, The Washington Post provided an update on the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL) activities in Sirte, Libya. Since taking hold of Sirte earlier this year, ISIL militants have closed banks and schools, outlawed music and smoking, and imposed harsh fines and beatings for violations of minor rules. While the ISIL movement remains fairly localized, it continues to benefit from Libya’s ongoing civil war.

On October 9th, members of parliament (MP) from the rival legislative bodies in Libya expressed doubts over the finalized United Nations (U.N.) proposal that would create a national unity government. Both parliaments will ultimately have to vote on whether to accept the deal. MPs of the Libyan General National Congress (GNC) expressed concern that they were not consulted during the development of the agreement, while MPs of the Tobruk-based House of Representatives (HOR) suggested the proposed government would only continue to divide the country.
