WATCH: Libyan Forces Fire on the Crude Oil Tanker ‘A-Whale’

The Libyan Marine Special Forces are seen, in a video posted on their Facebook page, firing upon the “A Whale” crude oil tanker as it attempted to enter, without authorization, the Es Sider terminal in northern Libya last week.

It has been a rough year for the crew of A-Whale. Earlier this year the TMT-owned tanker and her crew were abandoned for six months off Suez as the company went through bankruptcy proceedings.
