The Public Services Company for Cleaning Works in Sirte continues to clean the areas of the western main road of the city before the expected arrival of the displaced people to their houses.
Al-Bunyan Al-Marsoos has given the go-ahead for the IDPs to return to their houses in Sirte.

The Chairman of the company, Bashir Al-Ahrash, said the cleaning campaign will move through 700 Buildings Neighborhood, 101 Neighborhood, Al-Zaafaran area, Al-Gharibat farms road, Al-Daeri road, and the western city main road.

“We cleaned those areas from garbage and we also removed the sand barriers that have been piled up on Sirte streets for over a year.” He added.

Al-Ahrash indicated that the company’s workers, in conjunction with the Sirte security operations room, have also cleaned a number of schools, mosques and parks in the areas, besides planting new ornamental trees to receive the returning Sirte residents.

Most of the displaced families from Sirte suburbs have come back to their houses, but the IDPs from the city-center of Sirte have not due to the considerable destruction that was done to the areas’ neighborhoods, not to mention the war remnants that are still being removed by the specialized units, according to sources from Sirte operations room.
