Militants attack near Libya’s Ras Lanuf oil terminal

Suspected ISIS militants attacked oil installations close to Libya’s Ras Lanuf terminal on Thursday, an engineer at the port and an energy official allied with the country’s eastern government said, and the group threatened more attacks.

The officials said at least two storage tanks from the Harouge Oil Operations company had been set on fire near Ras Lanuf, where militants also launched attacks earlier this month.

ISIS fighter Abu Abdelrahman al-Liby said in a video posted on the group’s official Telegram channel: “Today Es Sider port and Ras Lanuf and tomorrow the port of Brega and after the ports of Tobruk, Es Serir, Jallo, and al-Kufra.”
