The House of Representatives’ member for Sidra district Amer Omran said Libyan oilfields and terminals are occupied by African mercenaries and “ignorant persons” who are looting the resources of Libya, adding that some of those areas were turned to IS bases.

“All oilfields are destroyed and looted despite reports that they were reopened and resumed production." He added.

He also criticized the NOC for confining its job to purchasing fuel, saying it has become an individual sector winning fake prizes after it had been for decades a national oil firm.
