ISIS claims attack on Libya’s Wadi Kaam checkpoint
ISIS claimed responsibility Saturday for a deadly attack on Thursday on a checkpoint in western Libya, as Libyan authorities announced the arrest of three suspected perpetrators.
“Soldiers of the caliphate assaulted the ‘Wadi Kaam’ gate, on the Zliten-Khoms road two days ago, targeting a gathering of apostate security elements” loyal to Libya’s UN-backed unity government, the terrorist group said via its Amaq propaganda arm.
Four security personnel were killed dan others were injured in the assault that was carried by one person using arms and grandes.
