Benghazi, 14 November 2014:
Three Libyan National Army (LNA) soldiers were slightly injuries as a result of a bomb . . .[restrict]attack on a checkpoint in Marj.
Mohamed Hejazi, a spokesman for Operation Dignity, told the Libya Herald that a gelatina bomb had been thrown at the checkpoint at the Saha Al-Karima roundabout, close to the town’s main Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq mosque. The car from which the bomb was thrown then drove away at speed.
Two suspects were later apprehended, Hejazi said. The attack, he stated, was believed to have been carried out by ordinary criminals rather than Islamists but he did not explain the reason for the thinking.
The attack is the fourth in five days on eastern cities under the control of government forces. In Torbuk and Beida two days ago as many as seven were killed and more than twenty injured in two separate suicide bombings.
Yesterday in Tripoli, five guards were injured in separate bomb attacks on the UAE and Egyptian embassies.
