The media bureau of Al-Bunyan Al-Marsoos (Solid Structure) confirmed that its forces had besieged IS militants in 5 km area in Sirte city, pointing out that the forces made huge victories on all of the front lines over the last days without losing a single centimeter of the areas they controlled and without retreating not even a step back since the start of the Sirte liberation battle.
The media bureau added that over the last two days the forces laid firm grips on Sirte port and Sawawa district and continued their advance to secure the road that links Sirte with Harawa district.
“Al-Bunyan Al-Marsoos forces freed four civilian hostages who were detained by IS militants, who tortured them monstrously on both the physical and psychological levels daily. The forces took the hostages to a field hospital.” Indicated the media bureau.
It pointed out that the forces foiled IS attempts to repossess Sirte port and were able to come out safe from the three car bombs that IS used Sunday to target Al-Bunyan Al-Marsoos positions, in addition to many airstrikes carried out by the operation’s warplanes on IS locations in Sirte.
