The United States on Monday launched two airstrikes in Libya, targeting Islamic State group fighters and equipment near the coastal city of Sirte, the Pentagon announced.

The airstrikes were carried out by unmanned aircraft and targeted a tank and a couple of Islamic State vehicles, said Peter Cook, Pentagon press secretary. U.S. surveillance drones were used to assist the targeting, though Cook did not have an estimate of how many Islamic State fighters were killed.
