(Video) Libyan Port Ablaze in Rebel Attack


Following a recent attack on Libya’s two largest oil ports, Islamic militants have fired rockets from speedboats at the country’s largest oil port of Al-Sidra, setting three storage tanks alight.

According to the Daily Mail, the group responsible for setting the tanks ablaze are now involved in a power struggle with the Libyan government.

Ali Hassi, spokesman for a security service which is allied to the country's east-based government, said that ground troops and aircraft had stopped the attack, adding: 'A tank was hit but the damage is limited.”
