Benghazi, 6 November 2015:
Another imam has been shot dead in Ajdabiya. Faraj Al-Oraibi, a Salafist preacher who also . . .[restrict]works as a pharmacist, was leaving the town’s Isra Mosque after Isha prayers (night prayers) last night when he was shot in the head by unknown assailants who were waiting in parked car outside. They then sped off. According to a source in the town, a hand gun was used.
The assassination has been blamed on the Islamic State (IS) who regard Salafists with particular hatred, viewing them as “kufar” or unbelievers.
A week ago, Salafist imam, Suleiman Kabylie, was killed when a bomb exploded under his car. He had been an outspoken critic of IS, denouncing its supporters as terrorists. Three weeks ago, another imam was badly wounded when a bomb blew up under his car; his nephew was killed in the attack. Just four days ago, Sheikh Salem Rahil yet another Salafist imam also escaped death when gunmen tried to shoot him. [/restrict]
