A mass grave containing dozens of bodies was found in the area of al-Thahir in the western suburbs of Sirte, a military source from the city confirmed.

The source suggested that the bodies might be for ISIS fighters that controlled the city before its defeat in December 2016.

Work is still on in the grave by the Red Crescent, which has not yet determined an official figure, but expected the number to exceed 100 bodies.
