The United Nations envoy to Libya, Martin Kobler, said on Twitter that the clashes today between Haftar’s Operation Dignity forces and Petroleum Facilities Guard (PFG) will lead to more division in Libya.

Kobler added on Twitter that such a fight will undermine any ongoing oil exportation from the ports where clashes broke out, and then leave all Libyans in bad conditions.

“Any conflicts can be solved by dialogue and discussions.” Kobler tweeted, saying Libya is in need for a unified army and unified government.
