Libya loyalists take IS bomb factory in Sirte

Libyan pro-government forces fire rockets targeting IS group positions in Sirte on July 18, 2016Forces loyal to Libya’s unity government said Sunday they had seized a building used by the Islamic State group to manufacture explosives in its coastal stronghold. The bomb factory is the largest to be captured by fighters allied with the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) since they launched an operation to retake Sirte in May, the forces said on Facebook. The fall of Sirte, 450 kilometres (280 miles) east of Tripoli, would be a major blow to IS, which has faced a series of setbacks in Syria and Iraq.
