ISIS Released Video Of Deadly Suicide Attack In Southwestern Libya

Screen grab from Amaq video.

On June 10, ISIS news agency Amaq released footage of the terrorist group’s recent suicide attack in southwestern Libya.

The suicide attack, which took place on June 6, targeted a checkpoint of the Libyan National Army (LNA) to the north of the city of Sabha. Four people, including Cpt. Ibrahim Abdel Nabi Director of Criminal Investigations in Sebha, were killed as a result of the attack.

Amaq footage shows the suicide vehicle-borne improvised explosive device, a pickup, blowing up in a large fire ball inside the checkpoint.

ISIS identified the suicide bomber as Mohamad al-Muhajir without providing any further information about him. His nickname “al-Muhajir,” meaning “the Migrant” in Arabic, indicates that he was not a Libyan citizen.

The terrorist attack proves that ISIS cells are still operating in the southern and southwestern parts of Libya. These regions are slowly turning into a stronghold of the group, like the al-Anbar desert in western Iraq, the Homs desert in central Syria and the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt.

Most, if not all, of the terrorist group’s recent attacks targeted the LNA and its security forces. The army is the most active party against the group in Libya.
