Libya: Fursan Janzour Brigade and Tribes Army clash in western Tripoli leaving deaths and injuries
One person was killed and five others were injured in clashes between Fursan Janzour Brigade and armed groups from the so-called Tribes Army – whose loyalty goes to Khalifa Haftar’s Operation Dignity – in Sayad district.
The casualties are from the Fursan Janzour Brigade, as the Tribes Army-affiliated armed groups said nothing to the media.
“We’ve clashed with a gang from the Tribes Army over the killing of one of the gangsters when he was trying to steal a car on the road, which was coupled with him opening fire on our fighters, who eventually shot him down.” The spokesman for the brigade, Abdelhamid Egnis said.
He added that the armed groups attacked the Brigade 17 of the Fursan Janzour Brigade, which was positioned in western Tripoli power plant in Janzour, after they heard that the plant received millions-of-dollars-worth equipment and machines because they wanted to steal them.
