The joint operations room of Misrata arrested a man linked to ISIS as he was hiding in the city.

The room said in a statement that the ISIS militant is Omar Dabbous; a Syrian national who operates for the radical terrorist group, adding he came as a refugee with his family to Libya in 2016.

The statement added that the arrest operation came after information showed Dabbous was in contact with terrorists outside Libya, adding that after thorough investigation and the issuing of an arrest warrant by the Public Prosecutor, the room's personnel executed the mission very professionally.

It also said that this operation is part of the efforts of the Government of National Accord to bring down criminals and terrorists.

This arrest comes after days of a similar one when the room busted a Tunisian national linked to Al-Qaeda as he was hiding in Tripoli's Old Town.
