Chairman of the Fuel and Gas Crisis Committee of Brega Oil Marketing Company, Milad Al-Hijrsi, confirmed Saturday that an armed group of fuel smugglers kidnapped two fuel truck drivers in Aqar town near Barak Al-Shati in south Libya, adding that their fate is still unknown.

Al-Hijrsi pointed out that the head of Sabha's oil depots, Abdul Qadir Mai, was also attacked by armed groups and smuggling gangs.

"Despite the risks, the Committee is determined to deliver fuel to the entire southern region up to the cities of Qatron and Ghat and Tgrhi in the far south," he noted, insisting that there are other trucks waiting to join the fuel transport convoy to the south, in spite of all challenges.
