The Supreme State Council of Libya yesterday called on the international community and the United Nations to help the Government of National Accord protect vital installations from political and military conflicts in the country.

This came against the backdrop of military escalations witnessed in the Libyan oil crescent area, including the most important oil exporting ports in the country, following an attack by an armed group affiliated with the Tobruk-based parliament led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar.

The Council stressed in a statement on the need to help the GNA “neutralise” the vital facilities from political and military conflicts as well as extortion, political bargaining and “declare them prohibited areas for any military formations with the exception of government forces”.
