Misrata Military Council has refuted news reports of deployment of British and American commandos in Misrata to stop the progress of ISIS in the region.

Spokesperson of the council colonel Ibrahim Bait Almal denied any coordination with Britain and US to deploy special forces in Misrata saying those reports are baseless. He also confirmed that no orders were given from the General Staff of the Libyan Army to move to Sirte.

"Our military brigades and the revolutionary fighters are able to conduct military operations," he said.

The Telegraph newspaper claimed on Saurday that British special forces commandos are working alongside their US counterparts in the city of Misrata to stop the progress of ISIS.
