The Battle of Sirte was the final battle of the Libyan civil war, beginning when the National Liberation Army attacked forces loyal to ousted leader Muammar Gaddafi in his hometown and designated capital of Sirte, on the Gulf of Sidra.

The battle and its aftermath marked the final collapse of the four-decade Gaddafi regime.
