The Libyan Deterrence Apparatus for Fighting Terrorism and Organized Crime (Special Deterrence Force) said it had arrested an ISIS fighter after being on the run for few years, adding that the man named, Ali Al-Adouli, fought for ISIS and was implicated in several crimes.
The Deterrence Apparatus added Saturday that Al-Adouli was known also for a 2016 crime in which he filmed and extorted a woman at a military camp used by "random armed gangs."
The footage of the woman caused a lot of controversy and ignited anger in Libya at the time. The Deterrence Apparatus said one of the men who appeared in the footage was arrested, while Al-Adouli fled for years before being detained this month.
The Libyan Deterrence Apparatus for Fighting Terrorism and Organized Crime was called Special Deterrence Force. In last December, the ex-Head of the Presidential Council, Fayez Al-Sarraj, ordered splitting the Deterrence Force from Interior Ministry under the new name.
