Seven dead persons were found in Benghazi in a landfill on Monday, according to source from the city.

Photos on social media showed that the bodies tossed in the landfill bore marks of torture and gunshots.

The sources added that the seven bodies were for persons, who were announced missing or abducted over the last few days.

Last October, 10 bodies were found in a landfill in Leethi area in Benghazi and the bodies bore also marks of torture and gunshots.

Since the beginning of Operation Dignity of Khalifa Haftar in Benghazi in 2014, several people have been reported messing or killed or even thrown in the landfills in the city just because they were Haftar’s political and military and intellectual foes.
