Gaddafi seeks Islamist allies, rebels nab fuel tanker

By Robert Birsel
BENGHAZI, Libya | Thu Aug 4, 2011 6:40pm EDT



(Reuters) - Muammar Gaddafi's son has made a bid to divide the fractious Libyan rebellion, telling a newspaper he was forging an alliance with Islamist rebels against their liberal allies.

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi's comments, in an interview with the New York Times, were a sign that the Libyan leader's camp hopes to exploit divisions among the rebels revealed by the assassination of their military commander last week.

The newspaper quoted an Islamist rebel leader who confirmed contact with Gaddafi's son. However, he pledged continued support for the opposition and denied a split with the liberal wing of the six-month-old rebellion.

The rebels scored a victory Thursday, bringing a ship with a seized cargo of government-owned fuel into their port.

The docking of the Cartagena, a tanker carrying at least 30,000 tonnes of gasoline -- a scarce commodity in government territory -- boosted an insurgency which has broad international military and diplomatic backing but is struggling to oust Gaddafi in his 41st year as leader of the 60-year-old state.

Gaddafi has so far remained in control of the capital Tripoli despite severe fuel shortages and rebel advances on three fronts, backed since March by Western air strikes.

Rebels in captured town plan push towards Tripoli
Thursday, August 11th, 2011, 7:04 pm Amman Time

BIR AL GHANAM, Libya (Reuters) - Libyan rebels who seized this town 80km south of Tripoli said on Monday they would now push on towards Muammar Qadhafi’s stronghold in the capital but expected a tough fight.

This small settlement in the desert is now the closest rebel position to Tripoli and its capture at the weekend is likely to inject some new momentum into a six-month campaign to oust Qadhafi which has been faltering over the past few weeks.

Anti-Qadhafi fighters had been camped since late June on the outskirts of Bir Al Ghanam, unable to advance. According to rebels in the town on Monday, they moved in on Saturday under cover from NATO warplanes.

They said their next target was Zawiyah, a town on the Mediterranean coast 50km west of Tripoli.

Zawiyah was the scene of two failed uprisings against Qadhafi’s rule since February. Many of the fighters in Bir Al Ghanam are from there, although a number of those who took part in the uprisings are now in prison or dead.

“Our aim is to get to Zawiyah. Once we do that Qadhafi is finished,” said rebel fighter Murad Bada, who was sitting under the shade of a tree and humming a song about Zawiyah.

Tripoli says NATO strike kills dozens of civilians
By Missy Ryan – Tue Aug 9, 4:54 pm ET


ZLITAN, Libya (Reuters) – Libyan officials said on Tuesday dozens of civilians had been killed in a NATO strike on a cluster of farmhouses east of Tripoli, but the alliance said it hit a legitimate military target.
A strike causing large numbers of civilian casualties could undermine support in some NATO nations for a campaign to oust Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi that has proved much longer, bloodier and more costly than its backers had expected.
A spokesman for Gaddafi's government, who took foreign reporters to the scene of the strike, said 85 people had been killed when missiles struck farm compounds in the village of Majar, about 150 km (90 miles) east of Tripoli.
He said the dead were 33 children, 32 women and 20 men.
Standing on a pile of rubble, Moussa Ibrahim told reporters: "This is a crime beyond imagination. Everything about this place is civilian."
There was no evidence of weaponry at the farmhouses but neither was there immediately visible blood or body parts.
Government officials provided footage that appeared to show men combing through the rubble at one of the bomb sites at night retrieving human remains, including the bodies of two children.

Libya rebels take casualties in fight for Brega
By Robert BirselPosted 2011/08/12 at 2:14 pm EDT

AJDABIYAH, Libya, Aug. 12, 2011 (Reuters) — Rebels on the eastern front of Libya's civil war lost 11 men in the past 24 hours fighting to capture the strategic oil terminal and refinery at Brega on the Mediterranean coast, hospital sources said.

Sources at a hospital in Ajdabiyah to the northeast said about 50 were wounded Thursday and Friday and one civilian in the all-but-deserted town was killed when a rocket fired by Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's forces hit a house.

The rebels have taken the residential zone of New Brega. But that is 10 miles from the terminal and port area.

They hope that capturing the port 466 miles east of the capital Tripoli will be a tipping point in their nearly six-month campaign to oust Gaddafi. They want to begin exporting oil from Brega as quickly as possible.

But the battle for it has been going on for months.

"There's close fighting in the oil terminal area this morning but maybe we can finish it off today," said rebel soldier Mohammad Muftah.

WRAPUP 7-Gaddafi forces, rebels fight over Zawiyah
Sat Aug 13, 2011 8:39pm BST
By Martin Veal and Missy Ryan


NEAR ZAWIYAH/TRIPOLI, Libya, Aug 13 (Reuters) - Libyan government forces and rebels clashed around the western town of Zawiyah on Saturday as the insurgents tried to push closer to the capital Tripoli.

Reporters heard gunfire and skirmishing in the coastal town, about 50 km (30 miles) west of Tripoli. The highway from the capital to the Tunisian border was blocked there.

The government confirmed fighting in the area but said a rebel attempt to capture Zawiyah had been beaten back.

Libyan rebels make major advance
Last updated 20:31 14/08/2011

Libyan rebels have fought their way into the strategic city of Zawiya west of Tripoli on in their most significant advance in months, battling snipers on rooftops and heavy shelling from Moammar Gaddafi's forces holding the city.

Zawiya, 50 kilometres from the capital, is a key target for rebels waging a new offensive launched from the mountains in the far west of Libya, an attempt to break the deadlock in combat between the two sides that has held for months in the center and east of the country.

A credible threat from the rebels in the west could strain Gaddafi's troops, which have been hammered for months by Nato airstrikes. Defending Zawiya is key for the regime but could require bringing in better trained forces who are currently ensuring its hold over its Tripoli stronghold or fighting rebels on fronts further east.

Rebels say Tripoli encircled; Gaddafi defiant
August 16, 2011

ZAWIYAH, Libya, Aug 16 — Libyan rebels said yesterday they had seized a second strategic town near Tripoli within 24 hours, completing the encirclement of the capital in the boldest advances of their six-month-old uprising against Muammar Gaddafi.
In a barely audible telephone call to state television overnight, a defiant and apparently isolated Gaddafi called on his followers to fight rebels he referred to as “rats.”

Gaddafi’s forces fired mortars and rockets at the coastal town of Zawiyah a day after rebels captured its centre in a thrust that severed the vital coastal highway from Tripoli to the Tunisian border, a potential turning point in the war.

Gaddafi forces 'fire first scud missile'
Missile launch against rebels marks first use of a ballistic weapon by Libyan troops since conflict began in March.
Last Modified: 16 Aug 2011 09:23


Al Jazeera's Zeina Khodr reports that rebels now control most of the strategically important city of Az-Zawiyah
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's forces fired a scud missile for the first time since the uprising against his rule began six months ago, but it landed in the desert and injured no one, a US military official said.


The missile was fired on Sunday morning from a location about 80 km east of Sirte, Gaddafi's home town, and landed east of the coastal oil-rich town of Brega, the official said late on Monday.

Brega has been the main frontline in the east of the country for months. Rebels have seized the port's eastern residential areas since last week, but Gaddafi's forces still control its oil terminal, refinery and port.

Libya rebels battle for refineries in east and west
By Michael Georgy – 1 hr 47 mins ago

ZAWIYAH, Libya (Reuters) – Rebels to the west and east of Libya's increasingly isolated capital fought forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi Wednesday for control of oil facilities vital to winning the six-month-old civil war.
In Zawiyah, 50 km (30 miles) west of Tripoli, they assaulted a coastal oil refinery to try to drive the last Gaddafi forces out and tighten their noose around the capital.
A rebel spokesman said a pipeline to Tripoli was cut. There was no word on the outcome of their assault after nightfall.
In Brega, on the eastern front, rebel forces said they had suffered 18 killed and 33 wounded Tuesday and Wednesday in their battle to dislodge Gaddafi forces from the oil port and refinery, where they have been fighting for many days.
Fifteen of the rebels were killed Tuesday and three on Wednesday, said spokesman Mohammad Zawawi.
Libyan state television showed video of Gaddafi supporters at the Brega terminal Wednesday chanting the leader's name.
After 41 years of supreme power, 69-year-old Gaddafi seems isolated. Rebel forces are closing in from the west, south and east, cutting off his Tripoli stronghold on the Mediterranean shore. Gaddafi's whereabouts are not known.

Scud??? Wow, that must be a precision thingz then, else if it was not a SCUD-D I would count it as a desperate measure. Onlz Scud D had submunitions, the onlz waz I can see it used for in the scenario, because the HE heads with the low accuracz (just gzroscopes like the V2) cannot hit anzthing important if not launched against targets of vast siye like cities.

http://www.fas.org/nuke/guide/russia/theater/r-11.htm

Which reminds me: Do we have an OOB of Lzbian forces somewhere? Are their SCUDs of the 1965 deplozment czcle or of the 1980+ deplozment czcle? etc... Anzbodz? Range could be a give-awaz: SCUDs A, B, C 300km, D version 700km. How far from Sirte to Brega?

All I could find on short notice was this, but it is not very detailed so I will keep looking...

Libyan Army - Order of Battle
The Army is organized into armored, mechanized, artillery, and surface-to-surface missile (SSM) brigades, armored, anti-tank, artillery, and commando battalions. It also appears that there are other units (type unknown) that are probably directly subordinated to Qadhafi. Army units are well equipped with modern weapons obtained from a variety of sources. However, the army has major deficiencies because Libyan soldiers lack the technical competence to operate these systems.

The Libyan Army has undergone extensive reorganization since 1982. At least three organizations emerged that appeared to be division sized mechanized infantry units. All other Libyan Army units are independent units of brigade and battalion size. This independent structure was probably developed because of Qadhafi's paranoia concerning coups/assassinations. Qadhafi took power in a coup and he probably does not want any commander gaining too much power/influence...

Gaddafi's son detained as rebels attack Tripoli

08:30 NZST Mon Aug 22 2011
by MSN NZ


Two of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's sons have been captured, according to reports, as rumours circulate that the dictator himself has fled the country.
Rebels advancing on the capital of Tripoli have entered the Green Square near Gaddafi's compound and his presidential guards have surrendered, rebel leader Seif al-Islam, of the National Transitional Council, said.

Gaddafi sons Seif al-Islam and Al-Saadi were arrested in a tourist village in western Tripoli, Al Jazeera reports.

It has also emerged that his wife and daughter fled to Tunisia on Saturday.

 There are widespread tweets in Tripoli claiming Gaddafi himself has fled, although scenes of people celebrating in the capital are mixed with crackles of gunfire, NBC correspondent Richard Engel reports via Twitter.

There is no accurate claim about the current OOB.
MT says that NATO have claimed 40% of the Lybian hardware to be destroyed.
There are also no reports about the Scuds, the one that has been fired should be one of the few left operational.
Same goes for much of the ATGW, AAA systems and other heavy equipment.
Many of these systems arent functioning anymore because of a lack of technical knowledge by the Libyan troops.

MT lists this as the OOB from last year:
MBT: 145 x T72, 280 x T62, 210 x T55
AIFV: 740 x BMP1, 540 x BTR50/60, 100 x OT62/64, 118 EE-11 URUTUS, 35 x M113
AC: 242 x BRDM, 370 EE-9 CASCAVEL, 100 x FIAT 6616, 200 x FIAT 6614, a few AML 90
ARTY: 130,105, 122,155, and 152 mm GUns all kinds western and soviet made.
AAA: 450 x 23mm, 30mm M53/59, and 57mm guns.
ATGW VIGILANT, SAGGER, MILAN, SPIGOT, SPiral ( on MI24.)
SAMS: SA 6/7/9/13 and CROTALE
HELI: 5 x AB 206, 8 x ALOUETTE, 16x CH47

Units with about 350.000 men:
11 armoured brigades
11 mech infantry brigades
5 infantry brigades
1 national guard brigade
40 independent tank batallions
48 independent infantry batallions
12 airboirne batallions
4 Ranger batallions
2 artillery regiments
6 SSM brigades.

Rebels take control of Tripoli
New York Times
Posted: Tue Aug 23 2011, 01:22 hrs



KAREEM FAHIM, DAVID D KIRKPATRICK & ALAN COWELL
Col Muammar Gaddafi remained at large late Monday, and loyalist forces still held pockets of the city, stubbornly resisting the rebels after their astonishingly speedy advance into the capital appeared to signal the end of the Libyan leader’s four-decade grip on power. “We do not know if he is inside or outside Libya,” Mustafa Abdel-Jalil, the chairman of the rebel government, the National Transitional Council, said of Gaddafi at a news conference in Benghazi, up until now the de facto rebel capital. He acknowledged, too, that the area of Tripoli around Gaddafi’s compound, Bab al-Aziziya, was not under rebel control.

The Scene In Tripoli: Rebels, Snipers, Chaos
by LOURDES GARCIA-NAVARRO
August 22, 2011


The Libyan rebels may have stormed into Tripoli on a wave of euphoria Sunday. But they were watchful and deliberate Monday as they realized that Moammar Gadhafi's armed loyalists were still a dangerous presence in many parts of the Libyan capital.

In one contested area, a rebel with a megaphone shouted warnings to his comrades: "Be careful of snipers. The city is not clear yet. Be alert."

But most rebels didn't need to be told. They were already jumpy coming into Tripoli, the grand prize in the rebels' six-month uprising against Gadhafi and his 42 years of rule.

When one Tripoli resident came out on the streets carrying a gun, he was immediately surrounded by the advancing rebels who were suspicious that the man might be a Gadhafi supporter.

The rebels demanded that people in the neighborhood vouch for him. When they did, the rebels let him go.

Libya: key role played by Britain in fall of Tripoli
By Gordon Rayner, Thomas Harding and Duncan Gardham11:27PM BST 22 Aug 2011

For weeks, military and intelligence officers have been helping the rebels plan their co-ordinated attack on the capital, and Whitehall sources have disclosed that the RAF stepped up raids on Tripoli on Saturday morning in a pre-arranged plan to pave the way for the rebel advance.
MI6 officers based in the rebel stronghold of Benghazi had honed battle plans drawn up by Libya’s Transitional National Council (TNC) which were agreed 10 weeks ago.

Editorial: An unsettling path to a mission-creep victory in Libya
Published 22 August 2011 05:15 PM

There’s little question that the 42-year dictatorship of Col. Moammar Gadhafi is ending as a ragtag rebel movement takes control of the capital. At least two of Gadhafi’s sons have been captured, key government infrastructure is in rebel hands, and the dictator has gone into hiding. Good riddance.
Hard as it is to argue with that kind of success, much of this process should leave the American public unsettled.
Libya’s uprising sprang to life after protesters, with minimal violence, succeeded in bringing down entrenched dictatorships in Egypt and Tunisia . Recognizing that trajectory, Gadhafi showed no qualms in unleashing a bloody campaign of artillery and airborne attacks designed to quickly destroy Libya’s protest movement. The bloodshed provoked widespread international revulsion and led to an unusual Arab League appeal for NATO intervention.
