Airstrikes Continue against IS positions

At the request of, and in coordination with, the Libyan Government of National Accord, U.S. Africa Command conducted precision air strikes against Daesh targets in Sirte, Libya. As a result, the following targets were struck by U.S. forces:

Sept. 9:

  1. One Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive Device
  2. One resupply position
  3. One enemy fighting position

Sept. 10

  1. Seven enemy fighting positions
  2. One supply vehicle
  3. Two enemy fighting positions

Sept. 11

  1. Two enemy fighting positions
  2. Two enemy fighting positions
  3. Two enemy fighting positions
  4. Three enemy fighting positions

This airstrike brings the total number of airstrikes in support of Operation Odyssey Lightning, which began Aug. 1, to 143.

The U.S. stands with the international community in supporting the GNA as it strives to restore stability and security to Libya.

These actions, and those we have taken previously, will help deny Daesh a safe haven in Libya from which it could attack the United States and our allies.
