Libyan Student Killed During Militia Clashes in Western Libya
[LIBYAREVIEW] On Thursday night, festivities erupted in al-Ajaylat, between the local al-Shalfouh aligned militia, and a militia affiliated with Mohammed Bahroun (known as al-Far) from al-Zawiya. Seven people have been confirmed to have died in the fighting.

College student, Shifaa Kroz was sitting near her balcony, where she was struck by a stray bullet that killed her instantly. Shifaa was a student at the Faculty of Education, al-Ajaylat branch. The faculty mourned the "martyr student," saying the news hit them like a "thunderbolt."

Medium and heavy weapons are said to have been used in the festivities. Activists spoke of indiscriminate rockets falling on the city’s neighbourhoods, and the closure of a number of roads. The Security Directorate of the Ministry of Interior has reportedly withdrawn its forces.

Al-Far, who is wanted by the Public Prosecutor’s office for his involvement in supporting IS, set the al-Shalfouh family home ablaze during his attack on the city.

#1 Indiscriminate rockets don't hate
Nor diss, much less dis-criminate,
Thus are nicer by far
In the great race of war
Than those horses that wait in the gate.
