Sirte: Still going on since May

Postby RYP » Sun Nov 06, 2016 6:47 pm ... Sirte.html

Libyan pro-government forces fighting the Islamic State group in Sirte evacuated 14 civilians from a battleground district of the city, they said on Sunday.

"Our forces today successfully secured the departure of 14 civilians, mostly women and children," from the last part of the city where IS fighters are holed up, the pro-government forces said in a statement.

IS fighters have been cornered in a single area of Sirte after a months-long assault by forces allied with Libya's UN-backed Government of National Unity (GNA).
