Libya’s NOC says an oil spill brought under control near Dahra field

Published: Updated:

Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) said early on Sunday that an oil spill near Dahra field has been fixed, NOC said on its page on Facebook.

The technical teams were able to complete repairing the leak in a short time without affecting the production processes, NOC added.

On the political and military levels, pro-Ankara Syrian militia deployed in war-ravaged country have started to withdraw, a French diplomatic source said on Thursday, describing the move as “encouraging.”

“This is one of the encouraging gestures that we have seen. There are movements (of the Syrian militia forces) that have been seen and noted,” said the source, who asked not to be named.
