The offensive to capture the Mediterranean city is nearing its "final stage" and ISIS fighters have been besieged from all directions.

The fighting, which started a month ago, is led by forces from the western city of Misrata, west of Sirte. The fighters advanced from the western and southern fronts and are currently besieging the terrorists from all directions, including the eastern front, after taking over the port located to the east of the city center. The UN-backed Libyan government says at least 130 people have been killed and 400 injured in the battle for Sirte. Sirte was the only major ISIS-held city outside Syria and Iraq; AFP reported.
