ISIS beheaded and crucified 12 men in Sirte, Libya during a battle over control of the city.
Gulf News reported:
Daesh terrorists have beheaded 12 people and hung them on crosses during a battle for the coastal city of Sirte, the national news agency LANA reported Saturday.
The fighting for control of Sirte, hometown of slain dictator Muammar Gaddafi, has been raging since Tuesday, with one top Libyan diplomat warning of a “massacre” in the city.
LANA said the 12 people beheaded were local gunmen who had been battling Daesh in the eastern Sirte district known as “neighbourhood three”.
The agency also reported that Daesh terrorists executed 22 other Sirte residents who had taken up arms against the terrorist group as they lay wounded in a city hospital.
It said the terrorists also set the hospital on fire.
