Forces loyal to the United Nations (UN) backed Libyan unity government on Thursday continued to fight and advance near the city of Sirte, an Islamic State group (ISIS, ISIL , IS and Daesh) stronghold east of Tripoli.

The forces loyal to the unity government seized a power station 15 kilometers from the city on Wednesday, a spokesman for them said.

The unity government forces, mostly from the western city of Misrata, took over the plant and a district called Wadi Jarf, on the outskirts of Sirte. IS has exploited the turmoil gripping Libya since the 2011 uprising that ended Moammar Gadhafi's four-decade rule.
