Chief of Ajdabiya security service, Sadiq Allwati has ordered the security members of the city's directorate to take action against those who shoot up security premises and police stations within the city.

Allwati permitted security members to respond strongly and use live ammunition against assailants, saying that those who point their weapons towards the security services should be treated like ISIS.

Analysists say that this demonstrates the deteriorating security situation in Ajdabiya, like other areas controlled by Haftar's militias in the eastern and southern parts of the country.
