Tunis, 11 October 2017:
The commander of a brigade from Zultan, between Zuwara and the Tunisian border, was reported killed yesterday in nearby Al-Jmail when he and his colleagues were attacked by a local militia allegedly allied to Sabratha’s defeated Amu Brigade.
Mohamed Al-Qadi and three colleagues were shot while travelling through the town. He died instantly; the other three were wounded, one seriously, and were taken to Sabratha hospital.
It is reported that the Zultan brigade provided support to the Anti-IS Operation Room (AIOR) in the fight in Sabratha, and it is thought that this may be the reason for the attack.
Meanwhile, in a separate but related development, it is reported that following the AIOR’s victory in Sabratha, two Libyan National Army units, Brigade Nos. 610 and 217, have moved back to their hometown of Sorman, less than 10 kilometres away from Sabratha, and taken control of a local army camp there. The two units had been at Wattiya airbase.
