A car bomb exploded in Benghazi on Sunday, killing two Dignity Operation militants, local sources said.

A military convoy of around 8 vehicles for Al-Saiqa forces was targeted with the car bomb in Al-Hawari district. 4 militants including senior commander Mahmoud Al-Wirfalli were wounded in the explosion.

“The car bomb was parked on the road near Al-Anabib roundabout and went off just as the convoy was passing by,” the sources said.

The explosion comes just after 4 days from the assassination attempt of Chief of Benghazi Security Department, Salah Huwaidi by a car bomb.

Sources claimed the car bomb attack on Al-Saiqa convoy came in retaliation for Salah Huwaidi’s failed assassination attempt. Huwaidi’s Criminal Investigation Department accused Al-Saiqa affiliates of being behind the car bomb that targeted Huwaidi’s convoy 4 days ago.
