As a result, Jadhran will now be subject to a UN asset freeze and travel ban.

"Attacks on the oil crescent resulted in casualties among the residents of the area and endangered the lives of civilians," adding that it caused oil exports from Libya to be halted between 2013 and 2018, causing huge losses to the Libyan economy.
