1987: Libyan Troops Driven Out of Chad

Chad took the offensive in its civil war. The Army of Chad attacked Libyan forces in the northern village of Aozou and routed them.

They then raided a Libyan air base that was being used to support the Libyan war effort in Chad. The Chadian Army claimed to have destroyed 26 Libyan planes. A cease-fire was soon negotiated.(History Central)
