Libyan-rebels-begin-battle-for-Tripoli

بسم الله الر حمن الر حيم

Libyan rebels appear to have launched the battle for Tripoli Saturday. Heavy fighting and NATO bombing was reported overnight in the Libyan capital, even as rebels fighting the forces of embattled Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi pushed closer to Tripoli Sunday and now say they are only 20 miles away.

The rebel surge to take Tripoli comes as more senior aides to Col. Qaddafi appear to have defected. As the rebels gain momentum, Qaddafi’s days appear numbered. But Qaddafi’s forces are fighting back fiercely, and it is unclear how long the battle for the capital will last.
Residents in Tripoli reported loud booms overnight as NATO warplanes flew overhead, and explosions and sustained gunfire in some areas of the capital, though the city had returned to relative calm by Sunday morning. Some reported that Muslim clerics had called for residents to rise up and fight from their mosque loudspeakers after residents broke the Ramadan fast. Though gunfire has been common in the city, CNN reports that it was more intense than usual Saturday night.
