The British Embassy in Libya expressed its outrage at the fatal terrorist incident in Sabha, in which two officers of the Libyan Criminal Investigation Department were sadly killed and four others were injured.

It went on to say that the UK expressed its heartfelt sympathies to the victims’ families and vowed to stand with Libya against those who sought to instil fear and hatred.

The Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group claimed responsibility for the checkpoint suicide attack. According to the group, one of its members, Mohamed El-Muhajer, rushed the checkpoint in an explosives-laden car.

Jan Kubis, the UN Special Envoy to Libya, condemned the incident immediately, warning the Libyan people and concerned authorities of the dangers of terrorist groups in Libya and emphasizing the urgent need to unite the country’s military institutions in order to face and neutralize these threats.

Soon after the terrorist assault, Libya’s Presidential Council called a meeting to form a committee tasked with gathering information and investigating the fatal events in order to locate and bring those guilty to justice.
