Subject: Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Airstrikes in Libya
International media outlets are reporting that the United States launched airstrikes on ISIL targets in Libya on August 1, 2016. According to press reports, the airstrikes mark the beginning of an ongoing air campaign in Libya. In light of these recent developments as well as past expressed desire by ISIL to target Moroccan government and Western interests in Morocco, the U.S. mission in Morocco reminds U.S. citizens to maintain a heightened sense of vigilance and awareness and exercise prudent personal safety practices such as varying routes to school and work, communicating travel plans with family and friends, and being alert to your immediate surroundings.
