The Military Governor of Sirte, Brigadier Ahmed Abu Shahma, disclosed that he proposed the formation of a military force dubbed “Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous Brigade” as per the plan laid for the security of Sirte main entrances and its suburbs.

In a TV statement on Friday, Abu Shahma said demining works are still ongoing in Sirte by the engineering units from Misrata, Zliten and Tripoli.

“We have allocated a cemetery for the bodies that are left in Sirte and the Red Crescent volunteers as well as the Crime Fight Department personnel have started to give a hand in this process.

Only when we finish demining in Sirte areas like Jiza neighborhood and other farms around the city as well as Al-Ghribat, Sawawa and other pockets, we would declare the official liberation of the city.” Remarked Brig. Abu Shahma.

He also called on the Sirte displaced families not to rush into coming back to their houses, pointing out that they should remain where they are now to avoid any inconvenience and to be safe so that the demining works end smoothly.
