The United States launched multiple airstrikes against Daesh (ISIS) militants in Libya Monday, opening a new, more persistent front against the group at the request of the United Nations-backed government, Libyan and U.S. officials said.The strikes mark the start of a more intense American role in the fight against Daesh in Libya, as the U.S. steps in to assist the fragile, U.N.-backed government. They were the first strikes by the U.S. on the group in Libya since February. U.S., French, British and Italian special operations forces and military experts have been assisting Libyan troops fighting Daesh militants in eastern and western Libya.
