The Libyan National Oil Corporation (NOC) has said it won't reopen Libya's largest oilfield "Sharara" until it makes sure it is one hundred percent secure.

The statement of the NOC came to respond to the Chief of the Petroleum Facilities Guard (PFG) of Khalifa Haftar's forces Naji Al-Maghrabi, who asked the NOC to resume work at Sharara field.

Armed fighting between armed groups loyal to Khalifa Haftar and Tabu tribe's armed groups hit on Wednesday Murzuq town in southern Libya.

The official at the so-called Brigade 73 Infantry of Haftar's self-styled army, Al-Mundir Al-Khartoush, said they had entered Murzuq town from the eastern side, thus ensuing clashes with the Tabu armed groups.

Meanwhile, local sources from the town said Haftar’s armed groups, mostly from Awlad Suleiman tribe, have retreated after fierce resistance from Tabu fighters.
