US President Barack Obama personally ordered air strikes against terrorist targets banned in Russia and several other countries of the Islamic state group on the territory of the Libyan city of Sirte. This was stated by the representative of the U.S. Department of defense Peter cook.
He stressed that the strikes were requested by local authorities. Cook added that the destruction of ISIS will help the Libyan government to make a “strategic breakthrough”.
We will remind, not so long ago, Barack Obama acknowledged military intervention in Libya as one of its gravest mistakes as President.
