Ahmida discussed ISIS and the current political situation in Libya. He commented on what he believes led to the ability of the jihadist militant group to flourish in the country: “A combination of both the lack of concerted effort to reign in these groups and the failure of Libyan leadership in tackling the security situation led to making Libya a security threat and also a soft spot [for] ISIS fighters.”
