"No. I’m saying that no decisions have been made either way," Grant said, when asked to confirm or deny the media reports.
Libya has been mired in a civil war since the overthrow of its long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. The resulting power vacuum enabled numerous militant groups to rise to power around the country, particularly Daesh, which has been carrying out attacks on Libya’s oil infrastructure.
London and Washington have been sending military attaches and diplomats to find allies among Libya’s rival governments and militia forces who would agree to receive assistance from British troops in the fight against the estimated 3,000 Daesh militants in the country, according to media reports.
