The U.S. conducts airstrikes against Libya in a mission aimed at ISIS targets.

FOX's Jon Decker has more from the White House:

The Pentagon confirmed that the U.S. military conducted precision airstrikes against ISIS targets in Sirte, Libya, to support forces backed by the Libyan Government.

Sirte is an ISIS stronghold in Libya and the strikes were authorized by the President, following a recommendation from Secretary of Defense Ash Carter and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Joe Dunford.

According to the Pentagon, the airstrikes against ISIS in Sirte will continue in order to help Libyan government forces make a decisive advance and restore stability and security to Libya.
