Benghazi, 30 April 2015:
Both sides in the fighting in Benghazi have been taking a break today after intensive clashes . . .[restrict]earlier this week. There has been almost no firing during the day.
The army says that following an advance in the south of the city at the beginning of the week, it now controls Garyounis, Gwarsha and Venezia Street as well as Buhdeima and parts of Leithi. However, the extent of LNA “control” in unclear. Snipers from the Benghazi Revolutionaries Shoura Council (BRSC) have been active in various areas, preventing LNA forces from moving freely.
As part of the advance, the LNA now controls the base of 17 February Brigade, part of BRSC, off Venezia Street. Following its capture, LNA bomb disposal experts were brought in to deal with a number of missiles at the camp.
There have been no reports today of random missiles falling today. Last night a rocket hit an apartment in Hadaiq but no one was hurt. Rockets also landed in Salmani. No on was hurt but two cars were hit.
Also yesterday a member of the Criminal Investigation Department named as Imhemed Al-Sahli, was shot dead in Sabri.
The body of a man was found today in Kuwaifiya. He had been shot in head. [/restrict]
