A gunman was killed and two security personnel were wounded in Misrata during a raid on a suspicious building west of the city.

Media sources in the city stated that security forces arrested 13 armed men suspected of being members of ISIS in the district of Sakit after clashes that lasted for several hours.

Security forces in Misrata have begun a crackdown on several of the city's security and military complexes following the bombing of the courthouse by ISIS last week.
