A US drone has carried out an air raid on a house where Al-Qaeda affiliates were holding a meeting in southern Libyan city, Ubari.
The airstrike killed two militants leaving them burnt and with no heads, plus a destroyed house and cars nearby.
The revelation came fro the spokesman for the Head of the Presidential Council of the Government of National Accord, Mohamed El Sallak, who said on Twitter this evening that the airstrike was coordinated beforehand with the US.
Ubari has never before been a target of such terrorists-hunting airstrikes, but other Libyan cities such as Al-Jufra, Sirte and Sabratha were targeted by US airstrikes, killing a number of IS and other terror groups’ militants.
