|The media of Al-Bonyan Al-Marsous claims that the key 700 neighborhood has now been taken and the sprawling headquarters of the Islamic State, the Ouagadougou center, is now under attack. The center was built by Gadaffi in his hometown of Sirte to host conferences. The media office claims that the fighting will rage in the coming days.
