The anti-smuggling brigade of the Joint Force of the Government of National Accord seized four fuel trucks on Saturday, in an operation described as ‘major’ against fuel smugglers south of Zintan.

The Force said that it had referred the arrested persons involved to the Public Prosecution Office, stressing that it would not tolerate those who steal the livelihood of the Libyan people, adding that it would strike, with an iron fist, any person tempted to smuggle fuel outside of Libya.

The operation, which is considered a major success, was conducted against the smugglers with the participation of unmanned drones for the first time.
