Ramadan Death count: Libya 02/07/16

(MISRATA) Libyan forces fighting to free the city of Sirte from ISIS have surrounded a conference hall in the area still held by the terrorists after air strikes and clashes that killed at least three pro-government fighters.

Forces allied with Libya’s unity government began a campaign two months ago to free Sirte from ISIS, after they took advantage of fighting between rival factions to gain territory and control the coastal city last year. Three fighters were killed and more than 30 injured during fighting on Friday after ISIS were driven out of the residential 700 district in fierce clashes involving rockets, mortars and gun battles.

Ramadan death toll is now at 8,338
