The Pentagon confirmed that US aircraft attacked the city of Sabratha on the north of Libya.

The representative of the department said that the purpose of air strikes were militants, allegedly linked to the banned group "Islamic State." According to US authorities, one of the citizens from Tunisia hid in the camp. He was suspected in organizing two terrorist attacks in his homeland.
