    (ANSAmed) - ROME, FEBRUARY 19 - A US raid in Libya has reportedly targeted Noureddine Chouchane, who allegedly masterminded attacks last year in Tunisia, at the Bardo museum in Tunis and on the beach in Sousse.

    An ISIS training camo in Sabratha, in the east, was reportedly struck. Over 30 jihadists were killed, according to the New York Times, which quoted a western source. According to local medical sources quoted by Sabratha municipality, 41 people were killed and six were injured. Chouchane's fate is still unclear.

    The source quoted by the New York Times said the Tunisian Chouchane is considered one of the most influential leaders of ISIS who has been linked to the deadly attack on the Bardo museum in March 2015, in which 24 people died including four Italians, and on a beach in Sousse last June that killed 38 others.

    Jamal Naji Zubia, director of the foreign media office for the Tripoli-based government of Libya, said the US raid struck a farm several kilometers away from Sabratha. The jihadists killed in the raid are reportedly mainly Tunisian nationals. (ANSAmed)
