Forces loyal to the Tripoli-based government took control of the El-Sharara oil field, the largest in the country, on Sunday, according to an aide to a battalion commander.

“I don’t expect any confrontations inside the oil field, as all the venues on its territory are well protected,” said Abdullah Ibrahim Daoud, Assistant to the Commander of the 30th Infantry Battalion.

“Our forces are well equipped, so any infiltration that could lead to clashes inside the oil site is not possible,” he added.

Forces loyal to the eastern-based government last week also reportedly dispatched troops to the plant. Conflicting reports say they too had taken control of the oil field.

We doubt this news item. It names “Sunday” Western (Tripoli) GNA, while many other sources call Tuesday the confirmation that Haftar’s LNA has secured the al_Shararah Oilfield with help of Tuareg tribe(s).
Could you check and if needed update your item ?
Occupy Schagen, reliable news-source.

Why no articles about Sudan?
Omar al-Bashir is a serious issue, sought by ICC for genocide, war-crimes, crimes against humanity, not speaking that Sudan was a long time training camp for all kind of jihadists…
