Video shows damage and shrapnel at a checkpoint outside an Ansar al-Sharia base in the Gwarsha District of Benghazi. Forces loyal to former Libyan Army chief General Khalifa Haftar attacked the checkpoint as part of their campaign to route the Al-Qaeda affiliated group from Benghazi.

This attack comes three days after a suicide bomber in a vehicle packed with explosives targeted the residence of General Haftar, killing three of his supporters.
