Three Libyan army soldiers were killed and another injured on Tuesday in two suicide bombings suspected to be carried out by ISIS, in crowded areas in Ghadwa, near the southern city of Sabha.

Interim Interior Minister Ahmed Baraka said the soldiers were killed when a suicide bomber blew himself up near the Ghadwa police station.

He added that another suicide bomber blew himself up inside the police station after his arrest, resulting in no fatalities except the bomber. There was also some material damage to the building.

These suicide attacks come less than a day after an operation to free 22 Libyan armed forces, who were held by ISIS. During the operation, several ISIS militants were killed.
