Ten bodies of civilians were found tossed on Zait St. in Benghazi, in a landfill.

Some of the bodies were seen with torture signs and some others were even without arms and legs, Benghazi Shura Council sources reported.

The bodies were found overnight between Thursday and Friday in Benghazi’s Shabna district, said Milad al-Zwai, a spokesman for Benghazi’s special forces.

For the past two years Benghazi has been the site of a military campaign led by eastern commander Khalifa Haftar against Benghazi Shura Council fighters and other opponents.

After long struggling to make progress, Haftar’s forces seized several key neighborhoods earlier this year, though they still have not brought the city under full control.

It was not clear who was responsible for the killings. Only five of the bodies found in Shabna had been identified, but Zwai did not give details.

The area is under the control of Haftar’s forces.
