Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) Chairman, Mustafa Sanallah, warned Wednesday that “terrorist organizations” could infiltrate the country’s oil fields, Al Hurra TV cited him as saying on its Twitter feed.

Sanallah’s remarks came after an attack on Monday, when an armed group assaulted Libya’s largest oilfield but was repelled after clashes with its protection force.

Oil sector in Libya has not yet been affected by the ongoing battle in Tripoli between forces under the command of the internationally-recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) and forces under the command of Khalifa Haftar.

So far, the World Health Organization said the death tool reached by the end of April 2019, in about 27 days of clashes, 376 deaths and 1822 injuries.
