A woman was killed and 5 others wounded in gunfire outside Ganan police station, 30km south of Ajdabiya, on Saturday.

The victims are family members from the southern city of Kufra who were passing by the police station driving a Hyundai Verna when the firing occurred.

Ganan police station reported that “ISIS gunmen attacked the station at Saturday dawn and set fire at the police cars, while a family passing by was caught up in the gunfire.”

No police officers were killed or wounded.

Meanwhile, local sources from Ajdabiya said that “the police officers opened fire at a Hyundai Verna car after being suspected of being terrorists”, killing a woman and wounding 5 others – 3 men and 2 women.

The sources claimed that Ganan police station fabricated the “ISIS attack” and set their 3 cars on fire to evade social and tribal responsibility.
