Six Tripoli Government Fighters Killed in Clashes with IS in Eastern Libya

TRIPOLI – Six fighters belonging to the government forces of Tripoli were killed in fighting against the Libyan branch of the Islamic State group in the eastern city of Derna, stronghold of the terrorist group.

“Six of the city’s young men were killed in the bloody battle that erupted on Monday and lasted for seven hours,” the forces of Majlis Shura Thuwar Derna said in a statement, which was released on Tuesday by the Libyan News Agency, or LANA.

According to the statement, the forces managed to destroy three IS tanks when the jihadists tried to advance towards the town of Al-Fatayah, southeast of Derna.

The jihadist group controls the Libyan cities of Derna, neighboring Egypt, as well as the city of Sirte.

Khalifa al-Ghawi, prime minister of the Tripoli government, ordered on Thursday all Libyan armed forces to fight the Libyan branch of IS group in the northeastern city of Sirte, the main stronghold of IS on the Mediterranean coast.
