The spokesman of Kufra Military Zone of Dignity Operation, Miftah Bouzid, said that two of the Subul Al-Salam Salafist Brigade were killed and five others wounded in armed clashes against Chadian rebels, which took place Friday near Al Jaghbub Oasis in the eastern Libyan Desert.

Six Chadian rebels were also killed in the clashes, he added.

Bouzid clarified that Subul Al-Salam Brigade seized four armed cars from the Chadian armed groups, which he accused of being responsible for the killings, kidnapping, and looting in the region, especially on the Jalu - Kufra road.

He also pointed out that the security forces are conducting intensive patrols near the area of clashes in anticipation of any attacks by gangs that might have entered the Libyan border.
