According to the outgoing U.S Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, US B-2 bombers conducted precision raids on two Daesh military camps on Wednesday located about 45 km (28 miles) southwest the city of Sirte.
Carter said the bomber killed over 80 Daesh terrorists in the North African country of Libya struggling with Daesh insurgency.
"We need to strike ISIL everywhere they show up," Carter told reporters at the Pentagon on his last day office.
“These strikes were directed against some of ISIL's external plotters, who were actively planning operations against our allies in Europe," he added.
In a statement on Thursday, Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook also confirmed the US military conducted strikes saying the air raids targeted terror operatives who fled to the remote desert camps from Sirte.
