The al Bonian Al Marsoos forces found the house where ISIS treated their wounded during an operation securing and canvassing the reclaimed city.

Pro-government forces managed to reclaim the city from the ISIS terrorists after seven months of war.

More than 700 troops were killed and more than 3000 injured in the process.

ISIS terrorists have been in control of Sirte, the hometown of Libya's former dictator Moammar Gadhafi, since the beginning of 2015.

The UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) launched a liberation battle in May led by Misrata brigades and other appointed Libyan forces to uproot ISIS from the city, AP reported.
