The workers of Zelten oil field of Sirte Company for producing oil and gas, which is located 50 km to the south of Marada, have gone into a full strike due to deterioration of security inside the field and for fear of possible IS attack.

In a statement Monday, the workers said they evacuated the field and stopped work upon low security in the oil fields that located in Marada and Zillah districts 300 km to the southeast of Sirte.

They added that due to seeing a big number of cars that have an IS flag on them in the district when they are working, they decided to stop work and go back to their houses until security is established, calling on the oil field’s administration to provide protection for the field.
