A security source at Tobruk's Port told Libya Observer Monday that the port was closed indefinitely for security concerns.

The source, who preferred to remain anonymous, said that gunmen stormed the port on Sunday and stole a container packed with blankets.

The gunmen used a generator and a metal cutter to open the container.

The port of Tobruk was closed in October 2017 on the instructions of the so-called Dignity Operation commander Khalifa Hafter but was reopened weeks later under pressure from the city's residents.
