Libya forces ‘withdraw’ from frontline bases near oil ports| glObserver Global Economics

Forces loyal to a rival Libyan government controlling the capital Tripoli have withdrawn from frontline bases near the country’s biggest oil ports, a spokesman said on Friday, raising hopes the ports may any minute at this time be reopened.


A Tripoli official said the internationally recognised government and the rival government, which have fought since December over the two biggest oil ports in eastern Libya, had reached an agreement to withdraw. He did not say whether troops had been moved from presently on.

The move, if confirmed, may pave the way to restart the Es Sider and Ras Lanuf ports which shut down in December due to fighting.
