MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Gardabiya airbase, just 12 miles south of Daesh-controlled stronghold Sirte, was retaken on Saturday afternoon, according to the Libya Observer news website.

Libya has been in a political and security vacuum since the 2011 Arab Spring uprising and the ouster of the North African nation’s long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi.

Years of instability created a political and security vacuum in the country that was filled by Islamist militants. Daesh forces gained a foothold on the Libyan coast by capturing the cities of Sirte and Derna.
