About Libya security monitor


Libya Security Monitor (LSM) is Eye on ISIS’s flagship project, a not-for-profit English-language repository of non-partisan, cross-checked information on security developments in Libya. It tracks the activities of Libya’s armed groups and political actors, the Islamic State’s offshoot in Libya as well as the other Libyan jihadi movements. The LSM is a valuable resource for governments, think-tanks, and businesses concerned with jihadi threats and their evolution in Libya.

Each week, we provide updates in four categories: ‘Libyan Actors’, ‘International Actors’, ‘ISIS’ and ‘Other Jihadi Groups’. All information derives from local sources or media reports and is cross-checked and verified before publication.

Our high quality research, briefings and analysis seek to inform policy making on Libya.
