IS in Libya Fires Rockets on Benghazi, Killing 3

Tuesday, 04 October 2016 01:24 PM

BENGHAZI, Libya (AP) — Libyan officials say several rockets fired from areas held by the Islamic State group have landed in Benghazi's city center, killing three civilians and wounding more than a dozen.

Libyan National Army spokesman Brig. Gen. Ahmed Mosmari says the rockets hit near a gas station in a crowded street of the Sidi Hussien area on Tuesday. He says the wounded were brought to Jala Hospital.

The area is located a few kilometers (miles) from the front lines, where the remnants of IS fighters and other Islamic militias control coastal territory.

The army, led by Field Marshal Khalifa Hifter, has issued a statement criminalizing the act and condemning those who target civilians. The army is leading the fight against IS in Libya's east.
