Fuel supplying lines that were shut down by an armed group in Zawiya have been reopened, a security committee assigned by the General Staff Presidency has confirmed.

The valves of the transmission lines -running from the Zawiya refinery to the Tripoli warehouses- were closed in protest of the recent airstrikes that the Ministry of Defence said targeted human and fuel smuggling gangs in the city.

The security committee urged cooperation to help security forces establish law and order in the region, calling on residents to exercise restraint and abide by the law.

It also lauded the efforts of the Petroleum Facilities Guard and the notables "who had a role in reopening the fuel valves in the refinery."
