A mass grave was discovered by the Sirte Protection and Security Force in Al Kambo, Sirte.

According to the Force media office the grave contained “20 bodies”. The found remains are believed to be of IS militants “who were killed during the liberation of the city of Sirte”.

Colonel Ali Rafidah, the commander of the Force, held the Presidential Council (PC) responsible “for the lack of logistical support to the forces securing Sirte to be able to perform its duties”.

In addition, the Colonel pointed out that members of the Protection and Security Force of Sirte have not been paid one year of their dues, according to the Force media office.
