Official: US warplanes hit multiple ISIS targets in Libya

WASHINGTON – American warplanes struck multiple targets in Libya overnight, hitting an Islamic State training camp and a senior extremist leader, US officials said Friday.

One official described the strikes as being carried out “against an ISIL training camp” and said the attack near Sabratha, Libya, not far from the Tunisian border, “likely killed ISIL operative Noureddine Chouchane.” ISIL is an acronym for the Islamic State group.
