At least 34 Libyan troops were killed in clashes with the Daesh terrorist group at the Libyan coastal city of Sirte, local media reported.

 

Aside from that, some 180 soldiers were injured in fighting, which took place on Sunday, Al-Masdar News portal said.

 

The Libyan troops pushed the Daesh terrorists to a single residential area, according to the news outlet.

 

Sirte was seized by the Daesh terrorist group, outlawed in many countries including Russia, in February 2015.
