A security official from the force in charge of securing Sirte city confirmed that the force had found a mass grave in the neighborhood of Al-Manara, known as the Kambu area near downtown.

The official explained that the grave was found following a report received by the force from a local citizen. After arriving at the site, the forces found a mass grave containing more than twenty bodies of who were likely to be ISIS fighters.

He added that the bodies have not been recovered yet. Al- Manara was subject to the most intensive fighting between Al-Bunyan forces and members of ISIS, before defeating the group in the city in December 2016.
