Sirte

thumb A square in Sirte (2007) (File:Sirte.jpg) '''Sirte''' ( ), also spelled ''Sirt'', ''Surt'', ''Sert'' or ''Syrte'', is a city in Libya. It is on the south coast of the Gulf of Sidra (ancient Syrtis Major, from which Sirte's name is derived). Sirte lies halfway between Tripoli and Benghazi. The settlement was established in the early 20th century by the Italians (Italian Libya), at the site of a 19th-century fortress built by the Ottomans (Ottoman Tripolitania). It grew into a city after World War II.

As the birthplace of Muammar Gaddafi, Sirte was favoured by the Gaddafi government (History of Libya under Muammar Gaddafi#Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya (1977–2011)). Six months after the civil war, almost 60,000 inhabitants, more than 70 percent of pre-war population, had returned. Dobbs, L. (16 April 2012). ''Libya: Displaced Return to Rebuild Gaddafi's Hometown - Face Needs?'' allAfrica. Accessed 22 April 2012
