Airwars assessment

Two decomposed bodies were found in a vehicle, reportedly victims of an earlier airstrike.

Qnat Aljamahiriya reported that two decomposed bodies were found by camel breeders. The bodies were in a four-wheel drive video, which had evidently been targeted in the “desert southwest of Sirte.” Based on the report, it appeared the men had died weeks earlier.

Several other sources, including Sebha now and Abdalslam Farag Almahde, reported identical language.

The local time of the incident is unknown.
