A couple of days ago, the United States conducted an airstrike targeting a terrorist training camp in the city of Sabratah that killed at least 49 people.
Commenting on the airstrike, Pack, who runs the website Libya-Analysis.com, said airstrikes won't do anything to weaken the presence of Daesh in Libya.
"I don't think that this aerial pin-prick approach is going to work. It's not going to help Libyans unite and take their country back, and it's not really going to materially weaken the Islamic State," Pack told Radio Sputnik.
According to the expert, the only way to get rid of Daesh in Libya would be to help Libyans to organize their own fight against the jihadist group.
"I think the only strategy that would work is to have committed locals who feel that the fight [against Daesh] is their own… the only strategy that makes sense is to work with different Libyan factions," Pack said.
Libya has been in a state of turmoil since the ousting and subsequent murder of the country's leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. Daesh forces were able to seize a pocket of Libyan territory in Gaddafi's hometown of Sirte in November 2014.
According to the Pentagon's estimates, there may now be over 6,000 Daesh fighters in the country, with their numbers having doubled over the last six months.
