Fighting resumes near Libya's Ras Lanuf oil port after LNA advance

BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - Fighting resumed on Thursday around Libya’s Ras Lanuf oil port after forces loyal to eastern commander Khalifa Haftar said they had taken full control of the area, a military source said.

Haftar’s Libyan National Army (LNA) has lost at least seven men in the fighting around Ras Lanuf and the neighboring terminal of Es Sider, according to military and medical officials.
