Two Lebanese soldiers were killed and three suspected members of the Da'ash organization were killed and five others were injured in two days of fierce clashes near the Dhahra oilfield in southeastern Libya.
A local official said Libyan troops had killed three suspected members of an al-Qaeda organization near an oil field in the southeast.
Omar al-Fiqi, mayor of Mourada, where the area is located, said two soldiers were also killed and five wounded during the two-day clashes, including a clash near the Dhahra oil field.
The field is managed by Oasis, a joint venture between the State Oil Corporation and three US companies, Hess, Marathon and ConocoPhillips.
The forces protecting the oil facilities and the operations of Oasis are loyal to the government stationed in the east, while the UN-backed government is based in Tripoli, western Libya.Keywords: http://www.shafaaq.com/ar/Ar_NewsReader/b27830eb-3ee2-4b08-b128-09d3c7cd0c31
