Militants affiliated to the Islamic State (IS) group held a house inspection campaign in South Sirte, in search for weaponry, according to local sources. The act was held in AL-Gharbiat village inhibited by Al-Furjan tribe.
Local sources told Middle East News Agency, MENA, that the inspection aimed at collecting weapons and ammunition, and searching for wanted people by the group.
