An armed group attacked early Saturday a police station in Al-Genan town in Ajdabiya, killing one woman around the station and six men, according to the Al-Megaryif Hospital sources in the city.

Sources from the city told Libyan local media outlets that the attack was done by an armed group, without naming a specific group, despite some social media blaming it on ISIS affiliates.

The armed group also damaged a great part of the station and destroyed a couple of vehicles of the policemen.

The police station is run by loyalists to the commander of the self-styled army in eastern Libya, Khalifa Haftar.
