Benghazi, Libya

Fighters of the Zawiya Martyrs Battalion, backed by the Libyan Army and other militias loyal to General Khalifa Haftar, clash with ISIS fighters in the Assabiri area in western Benghazi. It is one of the last areas in Benghazi where ISIS fighters still have positions.

The Libyan Army led by Haftar and loyal militias were able to retake control over vast areas of Benghazi and drive ISIS fighters to leave the positions.
