Is a clash different from that of the militia deployed to the South of Tripoli, on the front of the Salaheddin; it is a war conducted with other means, soon they could strangle the economy of Tripoli. According to sources in the government Serraj, France is blocking a statement condemning " the United States, Great Britain, Germany and Italy against the blockage of the installations of the oil decided by Haftar on the eve of the Berlin summit. “This is an act of war is a grave, of which the european governments understand perfectly the consequences for our country”, says a major source of the Government of National Agreement. “But, once again, France will block any sentence to support his ally, Khalifa Haftar. While it started a siege economic to strangle our people”.
The backstory: on the eve of the Berlin Conference Haftar from last Friday began to close the wells to the East and to the West of the Country. In the “crescent oil” of the East, “members of the tribe” (according to the average of Haftar) went to the operating centres of the 4 main terminal and have ordered the closure. In this way, they forced the Noc (National Oil Corporation) to block the wells from the South of Libya to bring the oil to the ports of the Mediterranean.
The next day, the haftariani have intervened directly with the militias allied in the West of Libya, where the government Serraj that, however, does not control the whole area the true Tunisia. To the men of Haftar is enough to close the two pipelines that carry oil from the south through the facilities of the Eni-Noc Mellitah and to the Noc of Zawyia to force the oil company to close the wells in the South. With the block of fields Sharara and El Feel overall, the production of libyan oil is down by 1.2 million barrels per day to about 70,000, which are the gas and oil extracted off-shore.
The document requested by the government Serraj to the United States condemns the fact that “the Noc has been forced to suspend operations in critical installations in all of Libya, and calls for the immediate reopening of the facilities of the Noc (...) We also support the immediate cessation of the inflow of foreign forces in Libya, but there is no justification for this dangerous attack against the economy of libya. We ask all parties to ensure that the Noc is able to perform its mandate in favour of all citizens and to remember that the Noc is the only oil company independent and legitimate in Libya”.
Even with this condemnation, too much banal of the actions of Haftar has been blocked by France. With motivations surreal: first, the Countries of the declaration had to feel Cyprus (which has no embassy in Libya) and Greece. Then he adds that the oil money could end up to “terrorists”, which is the subject of Haftar, attacking Tripoli and calling all the “terrorists”. France, in reality, seeks to undermine not only the role of Mustafa Sanalla, the chemical engineer, head of the Noc, but also that of Sadiq El Kebir, the governor of the central central Bank of Libya. It is the Bank of Libya, which collects all proceeds from the Noc and distributes them to the West but also in the East.
A source in the Government of Tripoli adds a special: “The France in addition to do the job for Haftar in the Eu, is working to attack the Central Bank and the Noc, want to join in the 30 billion dollars of jobs that the oil industry is preparing to outsource because after 9 years of civil war in one way or another, these jobs, these investments will be initiated”.
