Already almost 2 years into occupation, the clashes in Kufra continue with intermissions now and again before flaring up again.
The head of the illegal occupation regime's Kufra local council’s information committee said that unspecified militants had started shooting indiscriminately at the campus, part of Benghazi Univerisity. Troops were then brought in and two of the militants were killed. A student was said to have been injured while trying to get out of the capus during the fighting.
The "unspecified militants" typically refers to the Popular Resistance (jamahiri 'green' resistance) which has embarked upon a long war of liberation to rid Libya of what it sees as "traitor rats" who sided with the targeting of the Libyan Jamahiriya and the popular revolutionary leader, Muammar Qadhafi.
A member of the town’s Tebu community told occupation media in Tripoli by phone that three people died, all Tebus, one of them an elderly man.
Muhamed Bubakr claimed that the trouble started with a clash inside the campus between Zway and Tebu students. Zway militants then allegedly attacked Tebus in the town, killing the three. He also claimed that armed forces were present but did not intervene.
Kufra is now reported to be quiet but tense as the head of the local council, the local military commander and community leaders try to calm the situation and establish the reasons for violence.
A peace deal was agreed between the town’s majority Zway and minority Tebu communities at the end of July after months of communal clashes in which some 150 people died. But there have been routine breaches of the peace since with armed clashes on a regular basis.
