A video posted by IS Amaq News Agency had shown patrols for the terrorists in Abu Grein in Sirte and Al-Jufra in central Libya.

The video also showed masked militants stopping cars and vehicles in night and day checkpoints on desert roads.

The new appearance of the terrorists of IS comes after five days from an attack claimed by the militants on Fuqaha checkpoint in Al-Jufra, killing 12 of the pro-Khalifa Haftar’s forces (including two civilians)

IS was defeated in Sirte in December 2016 by Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous forces and since then, some remaining fighters are trying to regroup in central Libya and western Sirte.
