Hundreds of corpses of ISIS terrorists have been kept in refrigerated containers in an improvised morgue in Misrata, Libya since December 2016, according to a report.
The AFP reported that some 700 bodies have been kept inside multiple containers in Misrata at very low temperatures.
The morgue has been holding slain ISIS members since 2016, when the terrorist group was pushed out of the coastal city of Sirte – the group’s last bastion in Libya.
The dead bodies are stored in numbered and classified bags, with DNA samples, which allows their nationalities to be identified.
Most of the corpses belong to foreign fighters who came to fight alongside ISIS.
“We don’t know if countries have contacted [Libya’s] prosecutor general to recover the bodies of their nationals, but as far as we’re concerned nobody’s come here to try to identify the bodies,” Ali Tuwaileb, a man in charge of the facility, told AFP.
Tuwaileb said the dead bodies are mainly of Tunisians, Egyptians, Sudanese, and some Libyans and that no families have yet come to claim them.
Meanwhile, hundreds of other militants were left under the rubble in Sirte or in improvised graveyards dug by the terrorists themselves.
Between 1,500 and 2,000 jihadists were buried in Sirte, according to Tuwaileb.
