Four security personnel were killed and three others injured Sunday in an attack by Islamic State (IS) affiliated militants in Libya’s western city of Misrata, Xinhua news agency reported.
A source from Misrata’s local council said the militants attacked the Abu-Grin gate in Misrata in two vehicles before fleeing.
Misrata has been targeted several times by IS affiliates.
Last week, a suicide attack on the city’s western gate left five people dead and another six injured.
An IS affiliate claimed responsibility for Sunday’s attack on Twitter and identified the bomber as a Tunisian national.
