Nov 7, 2017 | ISIS

On 4 November, a Libyan National Army (LNA) security post on the road between Jufra and Brak al-Shatti in south-west Libya was attacked by unknown assailants.  Two LNA fighters were killed and four others were injured. The attack has not been attributed to ISIS nor claimed by the group. It has been suggested the attackers were local fuel and migrant smugglers. Local sources report that ISIS fighters continue to traverse the coastal highway 20km east of Sirte, an area deemed to be under the control of the Government of National Accord’s al-Bunyan al-Marsus (BM) forces.
