Tripoli 18 August 2015:
An attempt by Islamic State fighters to enter Derna at dawn this morning ended in a . . .[restrict]bloody battle in which eight of them were killed and another three captured, sources in the town report.
The group, driving in gun mounted Hilux vehicles and armoured cars, are said to have tried to approach the town from the “seven bends” road in the hills behind it but were spotted by a youth unit of the Mujahideen.
In the ensuing gun battle, the unit, reinforced by other Mujahdeen members, also managed to capture two IS vehicles and destroy an armoured car. [/restrict]
