Benghazi, 17 August 2014:
An Operation Dignity sergeant responsible for running supplies to and from Benina Airbase . . .[restrict]has been killed and then decapitated in Benghazi.
Chief of the Saiqa Special Forces Investigations Unit, Fadel Al-Hassi, confirmed the grisly killing to the Libya Herald but said he was unable to divulge the victim’s name.
There has been an increase in the use of decapitation as a tactic of intimidation in Benghazi and Derna in recent months.
At the end of July a Filipino worker’s head was removed, allegedly because of his Christian faith. In May the severed head of a Derna student, who was said to have challenged an Islamist brigade, was found dumped in a mosque in the town.
