Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) militants attacked guards at Libya's Es Sider oil port, Reuters reported, citing witnesses and troops.
The port, which remains under the control of Libya's internationally recognized government, has been closed for over a year as a result of the latest Libyan civil war between secular and Islamist factions. Daesh has seized some territory around the central coastal town of Sirte, but has not been able to gain control of oil facilities.
"Es Sider is protected by Ibrahim al-Jathran's Petrol Facilities Guard, a federalist armed faction," Reuters reported.
The group previously attacked the same installation in October, clashing with forces protecting the terminal at one of its gates.
