Coast Guard Commander, Rida Issa, said that a patrol of Zawiya Coast Guard has intercepted two rubber boats belonging to warlord Khalifa Haftar's forces, saying that any attempted sea attack on the western region will be a suicide.

Issa confirmed in a press statement that they have managed to obtain pictures of the French warship docked in the port of Ras Lanuf two days ago and that investigations are still on, saying that looking at the size of the warship, it is unlikely that it has any naval boats on board.
