Fierce clashes erupted Thursday between the Libyan army forces and Daesh terrorist group in Benghazi.
The Libyan army forces launched an attack by artillery and heavy weapons, said a Libyan security source.
Libya plunged into chaos following the 2011 uprising against Muammar Gaddafi. The ouster of Gaddafi gave rise to a patchwork of heavily-armed militias and deep political divisions.
The country has been witnessing numerous clashes between government forces and rival militia groups, which refuse to lay down arms.
