More than 60 people have been killed and 140 wounded in the latest attack between pro-government militiamen and ISIS militants today. According to a statement on the Facebook page of the Qarabouli municipal council, the clashes took place between militiamen in charge of the town security and armed local protesters. When the protesters stormed the militia’s barracks, the depot exploded, the statement said. It said that the depot housed firecrackers, not ammunition.
Fox News Reports: “At first, the militiamen rapidly advanced into the city but the push got bogged down in recent days amid a series of suicide bombings by ISIS. Along with the 36 militiamen killed, mostly in direct gun battles with ISIS militants, Misrata hospital spokesman Abdel-Aziz Essa also said that about 140 were wounded in Tuesday’s battles.”
