During his campaign, something President Donald Trump continued to speak about was how America must be tougher on ISIS and any other terrorist organization which means to do America harm. Fighter pilots with the United States Air Force have been making sure that happens.
According to news reports massive bombing runs in Libya have had devastating results with American pilots having annihilated over 100 ISIS fighters and a nearly 100 training camps.
From Fox News:
A pair of B-2 “stealth” bombers blasted two ISIS training camps in Libya on Wednesday evening, dropping 108 precision-guided bombs and sending jihadists scattering — many of whom were then “cleaned up” by drone-launched hellfire missiles, U.S. defense officials told Fox News.
The assault killed an estimated 85 terrorists at the camps, which were about 30 miles southwest of the Libyan coastal city of Sirte. Many of the fighters were “actively plotting operations in Europe,” Defense Secretary Ash Carter said at a news conference Thursday.
Most of the terrorists targeted had escaped Sirte after extensive military actions there. U.S. drones “cleaned up” the operation by launching hellfire missiles that killed a several of ISIS fighters trying to run to safety.
Immediately prior to the attack, the militants were seen in formation carrying weapons and mortars and wearing tactical vests.
U.S. Central Command posted a message for ISIS on Twitter:
With Donald Trump having been sworn in we will finally have a president who will waste no time in eradicating America’s enemies.
