Meanwhile, Wednesday was an epic day for the forces as they captured many districts and locations from the grip of ISIS militants. They seized Abu Hadi roundabout, Al-Jarif camp, Tagrift camp, Al-Thahair district, Al-Gharaibat bridge, and Al-Zaafaran roundabout.

However, the battle cost Albunyan Almarsous 19 dead fighters and almost 95 injured ones, most of whom left the hospital of Misurata after receiving medical treatment, while some simple injuries obliges some fighters to remain at the hospital.
