MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Bunyan Marsous Operations Room announced that Daesh terrorists had been ejected from their hideout after a day’s offensive, the Libya Herald newspaper reported.

The operations center said they had liberated a hospital and a university, killing around 20 jihadists. They confirmed having lost contact with a Libyan Air Force warplane, the second in the past two months. The outlet cited Daesh who claimed they had downed the jet.

Daesh gained a presence in Libya in the turmoil following the 2011 overthrow of the country's long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi. The country has been mired in a civil war since 2014.
