U.S. forces carried out two airstrikes in Libya this week, killing several alleged militants of the Islamic State group, the U.S. military disclosed on Thursday, just days after a series of airstrikes against an ISIS desert camp. (more)





U.S. Africa Command said the latest two airstrikes were carried out at about 2:50 p.m. local time on Tuesday, killing "several ISIS militants." The airstrikes occurred about 100 miles (161 kilometers) southeast of Sirte, but specific details were not released.

The U.S. military said the airstrikes were carried out in coordination with the UN-backed interim government of Libya. "The United States will not relent in its mission to degrade, disrupt, and destroy terrorist organizations and bring stability to the region," U.S. Africa Command added.

The airstrikes came less than a week after U.S. forces carried out 6 airstrikes against an ISIS desert camp in Libya, killing 17 alleged ISIS militants. The U.S. military said the camp was used by ISIS to move fighters in and out of the country, to stockpile weapons and equipment, and to plot and carry out attacks.
