Fighting Islamic Group (FIG)

The Fighting Islamic Group (FIG) is a Libyan opposition group that has claimed responsibility for "Wadi Al-Shateh's" operation which was carried out by a number of Mujahideen as an attempt to get rid of Qadhafi. The FIG is an Islamic group which has been established to support the cause of Islam and Muslims by following the creed of Ahlul-Sunnah Wal Jama'ah. In accordance with this principle, FIG regards the governing regime in Libya as an oppressive, corrupt and apostate regime that is at war with Allah. Abdullah Sadddek, the Amir (leader) of the FIG, is well-known as a Libyan citizen who resides in Tripoli. In response to Qaddhafi's threat to eliminate opposition outside of Libya, on 18 June 1998 the FIG affirmed that the retaliation will be in kind and outside of Libya.
