ISIL killed over 150 in Libya’s Sirte in 4 days

ISIL killed over 150 in Libya’s Sirte in 4 days

An official says some 150 to 200 people have been killed in the northern Libyan city of Sirte since Tuesday in a battle between ISIL Takfiri terrorists and local gunmen.

 

The Libyan ambassador to France, Chibani Abuhamoud, told AFP on Friday “A real massacre is taking place, and we call on the international community to intervene,” adding that the clashes erupted after the ISIL assassinated Khalid bin Rajab Ferjani, a Muslim prayer leader, from the influential al-Ferjani tribe at the beginning of the week.

He further said the terrorists have since been “massacring people, even killing people in their homes.”

The Tripoli-based English-language news website Libya Herald also reported that ISIL Takfiris captured Sirte Residential District No. 3 on Friday and started executing young men in the area, mainly members of the al-Ferjani tribe.

The news website said a source at city’s Ibn Sina hospital confirmed the arrival of the bodies.

There are also reports and photos of people who have been crucified and decapitated by the group in the city.

It has been widely reported that those who are fighting ISIL in Sirte have nothing more than Kalashnikovs as their weapon, while the terrorist group has heavy weaponry.

According to Libya Herald, ISIL positions in the restive city were heavily bombarded for half an hour on Friday evening in an operation that is not characteristic of the Libyan Air Force.
