Libyan Army troops commanded by General Khalifa Haftar, based in Benghazi, overran an Islamic State base in the southern outskirts of the city on February 27 and say they found evidence that ISIS had stored the dead bodies of Libyan soldiers in refrigerators.

The base was located on a farm called Mazraat Abu Bakr Youness, named after a high ranking Libyan officer who had formerly owned the property.

The troops say that ISIS used the farm as a prison and had built cells to hold its prisoners. They found overturned refrigerators with what appeared to be bloodstains inside. An officer said the refrigerators were used to store bodies but the bodies were removed before ISIS fighters fled the base.
Arabic writing on one refrigerator said “Do not touch… Whoever who touches this refrigerator will not be forgiven"
