Four Special Deterrent Force personnel were wounded on Tuesday morning when they were foiling a bank robbery attempt in Tripoli’s Al-Fallah district, the Special Deterrent Force (SDF) said in a statement.

The statement confirmed that the SDF personnel received an urgent help call from the force appointed to secure Al-Wafaa bank in Al-Fallah saying it is being robbed by an armed group while transferring money from the bank to the Central Bank of Libya (CBL).

“Then our personnel reacted to the call and foiled the attempt by clashing with the armed group, which managed to injure four of them.” The SDF statement said.

It also denied all the rumors that went on social media and media outlets that accused the SDF of robbing Al-Wafaa bank.
