The Operation Dignity’s Saiqa Special Forces in eastern Libya have allegedly found a mass grave containing 80 bodies at a site of ancient ruins near the Sidi Khribesh lighthouse in Benghazi’s Sabri district.

According to Mari Al-Houti, the head of investigations with Saiqa, the Red Crescent collected the bodies and took DNA samples so that they could be identified.

“The mass grave is believed to contain the bodies of those killed in recent fighting in the city between militants and the Libyan National Army.” He claimed using the National Army to refer to Haftar-led forces.

The Red Crescent urged the families who have members missing to come forward to help identify the bodies.
