In coordination with the Libyan Government of National Accord, U.S. Africa Command conducted an airstrike targeting ISIS-Libya terrorists in southwest Libya, on Sept. 26, 2019.

“This ongoing campaign against ISIS-Libya demonstrates that U.S. Africa Command persistently targets terrorist networks that seek to harm innocent Libyans,” said U.S. Navy Rear Adm. Heidi Berg, director of intelligence, U.S. Africa Command.  “We will continue to pursue ISIS-Libya and other terrorists in the region, denying them safe haven to coordinate and plan operations in Libya.”

U.S. Africa Command continues to support diplomatic efforts to stabilize the political situation in Libya in order to maintain our common focus on disrupting terrorist organizations that threaten regional stability.

At this time, it is assessed the airstrike killed seventeen (17) terrorists.

Currently, we assess no civilians were injured or killed as a result of this airstrike.
