A spokesman for the Bunyan al-Marsous operation, translated to “Impenetrable Wall”, has announced on Libyan television that the last ISIS neighborhood in Sirte has fallen.

This has effectively ended the battle for the Mediterranean city that was a Gaddafi stronghold before becoming the main ISIS stronghold of Libya.

The battle had been raging since 12 May this year. Most of the Government of National accord fighters, the government based in Libya’s capital of Tripoli, were composed of men from Misrata, 275km northwest of Sirte.

Aren’t the Government of Nation Accord just western puppets, and isn’t General Khalifa Haftar, who rules East Libya, an ally of Russia? If it is so, then this gain is questionable. But I am not at all an expert on Libya, just following it casually. Maybe someone else has more infos.

FR-UK-US-ISIS Kaput ! Congratulations to Libyans !
P.S: al-Bunyan al-Marsous means the “(lead)hardened construction” the term comes from a verse in the Quran describing the unity of believers in front of adversity.
