Dignity Operation forces took control of Ras Lanuf and Sidra oil ports in central Libya on Tuesday following fierce clashes against forces of Petroleum Facilities Guard of UN-proposed government and Defense Benghazi Brigades.

Dignity Operation forces launched an air and ground offensive on the ports early in the day after losing it to Benghazi Defense Brigades on March 03, forcing PFG and BDB forces to retreat.

Spokesperson of Dignity Operation Ahmed Al-Mismari said their forces managed to control Ras Lanuf and Sidra ports in addition to Ben Jawad town.

Notorious commander of Dignity Operation Ahmed Gharour, the man behind the attack on Colonel Faraj Al-Barasi’s farm in Bayda, was killed in the clashes.
