n old russian helicopter takes the badly wounded from the field hospital in Sirte to the hospital in Misrata. The Libyan government seeks to bring the wounded fighters whose injuries can't be treated in Libya to better equipped hospitals in surrounding countries. The general feeling though is that there is a lack of willingness in those countries to offer help in achieving this. Various Libyan army units, mainly made up of brigades ('Katibas') from the city of Misrata, have been fighting for some months now on behalf of the GNA-government (Government of National Accord, led by prime minister Al-Sarraj) against IS in Sirte, in an operation that goes by the name of Al-Bunyan al-Marsous.
