 More than 5,000 Libyan families have returned to their homes in Sirte two months after the city’s recapture from the ISIL terrorist group.

“Some 5,325 families have recently returned to eight districts of the city,” forces loyal to Libya’s Tripoli-based national unity government said in a Wednesday statement posted on Facebook.

Displaced families began returning to Sirte in early February after the city was recaptured from ISIL last December by forces loyal to the national unity government.

Situated halfway between Benghazi and Tripoli, the coastal city of Sirte was overrun by the terrorist group in mid-2015.
