BENGHAZI (Libya), Forces of eastern Libyan commander Khalifa Haftar have handed over control of oil ports under their control to a state oil firm based in the east, a military spokesman said.
Ahmed Mismari, spokesman of Haftar’s Libya National Army (LNA), said in a televised statement no tanker would be allowed to dock at eastern ports without permission from a NOC entity based in Benghazi.
Until now oil facilities are controlled by NOC in the capital Tripoli, which handles Libya’s oil exports.
Sixteen LNA soldiers were killed and 20 others were injured on Thursday in clashes after which they recaptured two oil ports – Ras Lanuf and Es Sidra – from a rival militia group.
