Several soldiers were wounded in a clash with fugitives Tuesday in the northern city of Tripoli.

Al-Jadeed identified the rest of the fugitives as Mohammed Kokolaki, Khaled Hmeidan (aka Abu Ali Lamaa), Shadi al-Zann and Abu Jaafar al-Nashar.
NNA said the area was still witnessing intermittent clashes and that the armed group hurled two hand grenades at the troops.
“The army fired back and threw a smoke grenade,” the agency added.
