The National Oil Corporation (NOC) has rejected the accusations of the Government of National Accord Defence Minister’s Desert Anger Operation Spokesman, Salem Abu Rawi that it had allowed the use of the Al-Feel Oil Field’s runway in military airstrikes by Operation Dignity on southern targets for their forces.

In a statement on Tuesday, the NOC denied the accusations and said no oilfield’s runway had ever been used for any military takeoffs or airstrikes across Libya, especially in eastern Libya.

The NOC also referred to the fact that Al-Feel oilfield is under the control of the GNA Defence Ministry’s Petroleum Facilities Guard of Fazzan, led by Abu Bakir Al-Soqi Barka.

The NOC’s Chairman, Mustafa Sanallah said that this new accusation is another attempt to thrown the name of the NOC in political and media conflicts, adding that the NOC remains and will always remain the Libyans’ trustee on their oil fortunes away from any political and military agendas.
