The bodies were for persons killed during the war on IS militants in the city.

A mass grave for 25 decomposed bodies was found Friday behind the building of Military Police in Sirte, central Libya, according to the spokesman of Sirte municipality, Mohammed Al-Ameel.

Al-Ameel told a Libyan local TV channel that the bodies were for persons killed during the war on IS militants in the city, adding that they coordinated with the city’s branch of Red Crescent to dig the bodies out and carry out the subsequent legal procedures.

He also called on the international organizations and the Government of National Accord (GNA) to provide the necessary support for the city to be able to end the phenomenon of the decomposed bodies that are spread around the city.

In seven months – from May 2016 to December 06, 2016, the operation of Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous managed to root out IS terrorists from Sirte and announced the city secure and free.
