First Video Footage Of Egypt’s Strikes On ISIS In Libya Released

fightt

Egypt’s military has released the first video footage of its airstrikes in Libya, which the Libyan military has said killed 64 ISIS-affiliated fighters and members.

In the video, the Military says it was targeting terrorist elements that threaten the security of Egypt and its people.

The video added that fighter jets targeted weapons storage facilities, training grounds, and other buildings operated by ISIS members in Libya.

The Military added that all fighter jets and their pilots returned safely to their bases after striking the ‘terrorist targets’.

Meanwhile, AP reports that Egypt has carried out a second wave of attacks in coordination with Libyan forces against ISIS targets. The Egyptian military is yet to confirm these strikes, however, Egypt’s state media reported that there would be more than one airstrike in the coming hours and days.

The airstrikes, Egypt’s first foreign strikes since the Gulf War in 1991, come after ISIS released a video depicting the decapitation of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians that had been abducted in Libya.

Earlier on Monday, Egypt’s President Abel Fattah Al-Sisi declared that Egypt had every right to respond after the brutal killings.

    Pres. Sisi and King Abdullah are brave and honorable leaders who protect and love their people. Obama is a disgusting leader who doesn’t mind his people being killed.

    There was a strike of such facilities last week also,,,, by another pissed off country.. I am curious if both countries knew where these facilities were why weren’t others already bombing them.. I mean training and munitions?? wtf?

      Attacking targets in a foreign country without legal backing or proper justification? Sorry, that’s “reserved” for the US. Jordan and Egypt only retaliated.

      That too was Egypt, but they denied it.
