A car bomb explosion in Al-Sahel Al-Sharqi district of Derna on Sunday has left a number of people killed including a senior Derna Shura Council commander.

A Daesh suicide bomber exploded his car in a checkpoint for the Shura Council killing senior commander Abu-Baker Garabiel and six others. Many others were also injured and nearby buildings were damaged.

Heavy clashes are still ongoing on the outskirts of Derna following Daesh's expulsion from the city's main districts two months ago.

Daesh fighters are now taking positions in Korfat Al-Saba'h and Al-Fatayah region, a mountainous area in the southeast of the city.
