imgThe US on Wednesday conducted several more airstrikes against the so-called Islamic State (IS) in Sirte, Libya.

The strikes, coordinated with the Libyan government, struck seven IS fighting positions, four vehicle-borne bombs, a pickup truck with a mounted rifle, 12 fighting positions, and one command-and-control vehicle, US Africa Command announced today.

These airstrikes bring the total number to 57, in support of what has been called Operation Odyssey Lightning, which began August 1.
