Conflicting news about liberation of Sirte


Social media sources have circulated the news of liberating the last holdout of IS in Sirte, Jizah, from the militants in there after a number of them surrendered and their families and civilian families were escorted out of the area by the Misurata-led forces.

The spokesman of the Misurata Central Hospital, Akram Galiwan, said a number of IS children and women arrived in the hospital after the Libyan forces of Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous made their way into the last areas where IS militants were hiding in Jizah.

No official source has spoken yet about the liberation of the whole city of Sirte.
