LIBYAPROSPECT – Misrata
The forces of the Operation “Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous” announced that they advanced in the city of Sirte and controlled the Ouagadougou complex, the key base of the Islamic State (IS) group. They also regained the University of Sirte and the hospital.
“According to Reuters, the spokesperson of Media Center of the Operation “Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous,” Reda Essa, said that “our forces have complete control of the whole of the Ouagadougou (convention) complex – they even advanced some distance beyond the compound.”
Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous’s confirmation is considered as the biggest advance for the forces. This comes after the US air strikes on Sirte that eased the movement of the Operation of Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous to oust the elements of the IS from Sirte.
Regaining Ouagadougou complex, the university, and the hospital comes after very heavy clashes against the IS.
At the end of Wednesday, the Operation “Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous” lost over 16 of its forces who were killed in the heavy battles.
Al-Bunyan Al-Marsous is getting ready to attack the last areas to free them from the IS elements, the districts “1”, “2”, and ‘3”.
