US Africa Command has now conducted more than 400 airstrikes as part of Operation Odyssey Lightning against Islamic State in Libya since 1 August.  In the south, an AT-802 aircraft, allegedly operated by the UAE,  has bombed a Tebu-held position near Kufra.  Proxy forces are needed because the Libyan Air Force are in such a rundown state – see pages 268-270 of Belfast to Benghazi
