Benghazi, 14 May 2017:
A commander of Benghazi’s police emergency response unit, the najdah, was killed in the early hours of the morning when gunmen attacked his vehicle near the unit’s headquarters in the city’s Birkah district.
Captain Musa Yunis Al-Majbri, married with three children, is said to have been shot dead following an altercation with a number of men in a small convoy, some of whom were said to be in military uniform, others in civilian clothing.
Allegations that elements from Saiqa special forces were to blame have been denied by the brigade. In a statement, it says that the killing appears to have been related to a private feud. An investigation has been launched into what happened, it adds. It also warns social media activists against using the story to attack the brigade and trying to cause dissension among those fighting against terrorism.
This was not the first time that a unit of the najdah forces, part of Benghazi Security Directorate, was attacked. There was a similar incident last week, but there were no injuries on that occasion.
