Misrata-led forces advance into Jiza, ISIS deploy suicide bombers

Five Misrata-led fighters were killed and more than 30 others injured on Saturday in three separate ISIS attacks in Jiza apartment blocks in Sirte, the last ISIS-held area in the city.

Following two days of intense airstrikes and artillery shelling, Misrata-led forces launched a fresh attack on ISIS remnants in Jiza who are trapped inside 54 houses, according to military sources.

As the infantry move between the houses, a trapped ISIS bomber exploded his explosive belt while other ISIS diehards launched suicide grenade attacks.

“Misrata-led forces have taken control of 30 houses today,” the military sources said.

While combing the liberated houses, an ISIS woman asked for a safe corridor, but as she was leaving, she tricked the fighters and opened fire on them before being killed.

Last week, Misrata-led forces recovered 30 ISIS bodies from the clashes zone in Jiza.
