According to media sources, the Libyan oil export port of Zueitina was closed due to protests demanding state jobs. The protesters were complaining that, contrary to promises made by the previous oil minister, they had not been hired by the state as promised. According to a source at the port, protesters closed the pipeline leading to the port.

Zueitina port, which has closed several times since 2011 due to protesters demanding jobs or management changes at state oil firms, is one of the few Libyan ports still exporting oil after the closures of several other ports amidst ongoing political turmoil.
