The spokesperson for the Chairman of Presidential Council said on Wednesday that a site with a number of Al-Qaeda members in Ubari town, southwestern Libya, was raided by Joint US-Libyan forces.

Mohammed El Sallak declined to give further details but said the airstrike was conducted within the joint cooperation between the Presidential Council and the United States to fight terrorism.

“The airstrike coincided with the meeting of Foreign Minister Mohamed Sayala with his American counterpart Mike Pompeo at the Global Coalition To Defeat Daesh meeting last week,” El Sallak added.
