The Sirte war happened between 2015 and 2016, during which Libyan forces were supported by US to defeat the dreaded IS militants.
There are reportedly still several orphaned children in Misrata who are still waiting to be claimed by their respective countries and relatives.
According to Reuters, hundreds of women and children were detained in Misrata towards the end of the war. These include nationals from Tunisia, Egypt, Sudan, Senegal, Niger and Chad.
Officials at Misrata are now calling upon countries that are yet to claim their babies to do as as an act of humanity so that the kids can be united with their existing relatives.
