The forces of the commander of the western military zone of the Presidential Council, Osama Jeweili, and the forces of the Presidential Guard clashed on Friday in Abu Kammash area in western Zuwara – nearby the Libyan-Tunisian border of Ras Ajdair.

The clashes, according to Jeweili, aimed to end crimes’ dens and hubs of smuggling in western Libya with the help of several western security departments, including Ajilat town, Al-Jemail town, and others in west of the country.

The clashes, local media reported, killed one person believed to be an Algerian national and injured three others.

In the meantime, the officials in Zuwara and the municipality condemned the attacks led by Jeweili and blamed the Presidential Council for them.
