Armed group attacks Criminal Investigation Department in Sorman

The head of the Criminal Investigation Department, the west branch, Ali Benini, said that an armed group attacked the headquarters of the department in the city of Sorman and that security forces fired back in response.

Benini explained in a press statement that the attack on the department came against the backdrop of the killing of two members of the armed group, during clashes between them and a special patrol of the Criminal Investigation Department, in the area of Abu Issa on Wednesday morning.

A source from the region said that the armed group was engaged in fuel smuggling operations and that the clashes continued until Wednesday evening, resulting in the closure of the coastal road between Sorman and Zawiya.
