The Libyan Red Crescent (LRC), Sirte branch, has found a mass grave in Al-Dahir district, 16 km west of the city.

A source from the LRC said that the body removal team has identified the mass grave site with remains of an unknown number of bodies.

He pointed out that the team already placed a red tape around the grave until they obtain the permission of the Prosecutor’s Office and the military room to exhume the bodies.

The mass grave is not the first to be found in the neighborhoods of Sirte after the military campaign launched last year in the city by Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous on ISIS.
