Egypt Jets Eliminate IS Terrorist Camps in Libya; Respond to IS Bus Attack on Christians Yesterday

Egypt's air force launched strikes on suspected terrorist camps in Libya today (May 27, 2017) in retaliation for the deadly bus attack by Islamic State (IS) terrorists on Christians traveling to an Egyptian Christian monastery, according to the UPI website.

"The [air force] attack resulted in the complete destruction of the targets which included training and concentration areas of elements that participated in the planning and execution of the attack," an army statement said.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi announced on national TV that he had directed six strikes in the Libyan port city of Derna, along its western border.

"Egypt will never hesitate to strike terror camps anywhere... if it plans attacking Egypt whether inside or outside the country," Sisi said.
