New mass grave discovered in Derna

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

DERNA – A new mass grave was discovered in a forest in Derna on Monday, according to a statement by the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation.

“The discovery of the grave came after receiving information from sources, regarding strange activities and digging inside the Bumusafir forest, as well as the frequent visits of strange vehicles to the forest at night,” the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation said.

The General Directorate of Criminal Investigation said it’s cooperating with competent authorities to take necessary legal procedures.

In October 2014, the terrorist group ISIS took control of numerous government buildings, security vehicles and local landmarks in Derna.

Derna witnessed a series of fierce battles after the Libyan National Army (LNA) launched a military operation in 2015 to liberate the city from ISIS, Al-Qaeda and other extremist groups.
