Gunmen from so-called the Anti-Terrorism Battalion of Dignity Operation forcibly arrested a patient from one of Tobruk's hospitals on Tuesday, a source from the city confirmed.

The source said that the patient, Abdullah Al-Masmari, was one of the many who were displaced from the city of Benghazi to Tobruk and was receiving treatment in the hospital.

Al-Masmari was taken by members of the armed group despite his poor health condition to an unknown destination.

The source pointed out that the militants justified their actions to hospital staff by saying that “the patient has links to Benghazi Shura Council”.
