Benghazi terrorists have seized majoir oil fields in Libya and may soon conquer the entire country.
The BBC News reports that, "Islamist militants are reported to have seized two oil fields in central Libya, as rival groups fight for control of the country. Forces guarding the al-Bahi and al-Mabruk sites retreated after running out of ammunition."
Col. Ali al-Hassi, a spokesman for the oil industry security service, is quoted as saying that, "Extremists took control of the al-Bahi and al-Mabruk fields and are now heading to seize the al-Dahra field following the retreat of the forces guarding these sites."
According to the BBC News, "Libya's internationally recognised government in Tobruk is locked in a bitter battle with rivals Libya Dawn, who control the capital, Tripoli. The two sides also mounted airstrikes against each other on Tuesday."
Benghazi terrorists have expanded their military prowess after attacking the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 when Hillary Clinton served as U.S. Secretary of State at the time.
