The Libyan armed forces have stepped up patrols of the Coast Guard, and charged warplanes bombed any unidentified vessel approaching from the Libyan beaches in an attempt to stop the smuggling of Libyan oil. The Reuters news agency quoted Abdul Razzaq Cbahi spokesman for the Defense Ministry as saying “I put three air bases in a high degree of preparedness to hit and destroy … Any oil tanker not have contractual agreements with the national oil company. ” The Cbahi explained that the tanker flying the flag of Liberia sought to load crude oil when gunmen protesters were blocking the main oil export ports in the country and trying to sell it illegally.
