An armed Salafist group loyal to Haftar demolished on Wednesday morning large parts of the "Issawiya Zawiya", a Sufi shrine in Sirte, which was founded in 1930.

A member of the committee overseeing the building - who preferred to stay anonymous - said that a group of people used a bulldozer to demolish the Zawiya building before a security agency stopped them.

Armed Salafist groups loyal to Haftar have demolished a number of Sufi shrines in Derna, Benghazi, Kufra, and other places.
