Al-Bunyan Al-Marsoos forces uncover underground tunnels; disconnect ISIS-controlled areas in Sirte
Al-Bunyan Al-Marsoos forces managed on Friday to separate the last ISIS-controlled areas in Sirte, a spokesperson has declared.
Brigadier Mohammed Al-Gosri said the Misrata-led forces took control of the dividing line between neighbourhood 600 and sea-view Jiza apartment buildings, describing it a heroic act.
The control of the dividing line will disconnect ISIS militants in both areas from each other and cut aid routes to the radical group.
"This will make it easier to eliminate ISIS remnants more than ever," Al-Gosri noted, expecting the final battle would take place within the next hours.
He said their forces have discovered secrete underground tunnels that were used by ISIS militants to move within their besieged areas in the city.
Al-Gosri also revealed that the Italian field hospital is going to open in the next few days to treat their wounded fighters.
