An armed militia group composed of tribesmen, the so-called Fezzan Anger Movement, has reportedly seized control of the Sharara oilfield in Libya's southwest, with the National Oil Corporation (NOC) declaring force majeure at the site as of Sunday, December 9. Similar militia attacks targeting infrastructure are possible in Libya over the near term.
The so-called Fezzan Anger Movement is calling for improved public services and development projects in southern Libya.
The security environment in Libya remains complex. Although travel is possible in some areas (with appropriate security protocols in place), other areas should be considered strictly off limits. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
