imgIslamic State (IS)-affiliated militants on Tuesday took over a power plant in the northern coastal city of Sirte in Libya, according to the group and a military source.
“The caliphate soldiers stormed the power plant, where the infidels of Libya Dawn were stationed. They took over the plant with the will and power of Allah,” the group said in a statement in
social media.
The IS affiliated militants added they completely seized the whole of Sirte city.
A military source from Libya Dawn confirmed the loss of the power plant, adding that four people were killed and 10 others wounded in the attack by IS.
