The Libyan Red Crescent received on Thursday the bodies of four soldiers of Gharyan Protection Force, who were captured three days ago by Haftar's forces.
The bodies of the four prisoners arrived at Gharyan Central Hospital with visible signs of torture.
A grand funeral was held for the soldiers at Shula Square in the centre of the city, at Assar prayer.
The soldiers were captured in the area of Ghout al-Reeh, south of Gharyan, during Haftar's forces' attempt to advance into the city, before they were repelled by the Libyan army forces.
