Killing of fighter from Ibrahim Jodran-led forces escalates fight with Haftar’s forces
The so-called Petroleum Facilities Guard (PFG) said one of its fighters was killed after being shot as he was driving a car with another PFG fighter while on an official task, adding – in a statement – that the car came under heavy fire opened by the “illegitimate gangs” of Dignity Operation, according to the statement, leading to the death of one fighter and the injury of the other, while a third fighter who was in the clashes area was kidnapped and efforts are underway to release him.
“Dignity Operation is trying to repeat Benghazi’s atrocious scenario in Ajdabia and this incident could be the prompter of a never-ending conflict in Ajdabia.” The statement reads, calling on Ajdabia residents to avoid any division and conflicts and learn lessons from what has happened to Benghazi.
“PFG is at the top level of self-constraint so that it does not get drifted into any conflict or division.” The statement remarks, explaining that it will not go easy on those who attack the PFG fighters and its response to those who did that crime will be relentless.
Dignity Operation forces and Ibrahim Jodran-led forces have been involved in a growing unrest that got even more intense lately, especially after Khalifa Haftar’s militias put their hands on the central region’s oil fields and their last attack on key oil terminal, Zueitina, aiming at a full control on all oil facilities in the region.
