Opposition Claims Control of Tripoli

Libyan opposition forces are storming Tripoli at this moment. Most of the city is already in their hands. Militia supports aviation NATO. Now the fighting is going on for the residence of Muammar Gaddafi - there still remained soldiers loyal to the colonel. Western observers believe that everything will be decided in the coming hours.


According to recent reports, Tripoli fell. In the hands of the opposition forces is already 90 percent of the city. The fighting continues only in the area of ​​the residence of Colonel Gaddafi, but, according to the statements of the commanders of the National Transitional Council, victory is not far off - the units of the government forces are folding one after another weapon. CNN showed how in the Green Square of the city, where 40 had delivered its speeches to Gaddafi for years, his opponents had a celebration. The population of Tripoli, judging by the frames shown, is happy to meet oppositionists.

"Look how happy the people are, everyone is glad that we came and finally liberated the capital. Yesterday and today people died, I myself was hurt, but this is a victory, a victory!", Says one of them.

As reported by Reuters, the son and successor of Gaddafi Seif Al-Islam, along with the guards, surrendered. Negotiations are underway to transfer him to the International Criminal Court in The Hague. Another two sons - Muhammad and Saad Gaddafi - captured. The colonel loses his closest comrades - they scatter one by one and say that the regime of their former leader will fall very soon.

"Gaddafi will lose power very soon - in the coming week, or maybe even earlier. The military advantage is not on his side. He already has to hire teenagers, he pays for them, giving them used cars, they are handed Kalashnikov assault rifles, they train from strength ten days, and sent to fight the rebels. And then they die. "

In this case, the colonel flatly refuses to leave. According to some reports, he agrees to cease hostilities and sit down at the negotiating table. Both sides suffer very heavy losses, in the past 12 hours about a thousand and a half people have died, more than 5000 have been injured.

“Hospitals are overcrowded, there is not enough medicine. And we don’t want to continue this massacre, but if the bombings are not stopped, thousands more soldiers are ready to fight.

Western military observers who work in the capital of Libya, say that in the coming hours the assault on the city will end in victory for the opposition. But if you believe the promises of those few who remained faithful to Gaddafi to the end, the bloodshed will not stop with the capture of Tripoli.

    Now it’s Syria’s turn, but need a resolution or is it no longer needed?
    And then Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Iran may come into conflict.

    These Western observers have already lied so many times that they cannot be trusted this time either.

      Igor Golub :))))))))))) I also found the source. In addition, there is already an 22 number, not an 21. There is still the same L. Vershinin.
      In general, do not read the different fanatics who end up from one type of Gaddafi.

    Nevertheless, the rebels approached Tripoli, although a few months ago they themselves were defending themselves. And it’s just those who talked about the futility of the West’s operation against Libya. Syria is next in line.

    Until I see Gaddafi in a cage or in a loop, I will not believe anyone that he lost.

    Now in NATO, all use the expression "catastrophic success." Even if success does not result in a catastrophe, it will entail chaos, since the opposition is not ready to rule the country and with Gadhafi’s departure, a vacuum

      Well, his mistake was that people didn’t like him in the right amount, the Bedouins didn’t sit on Twitter, which was why. It is necessary to share with the people.

    I think that he will hold out even today, or maybe tomorrow, Gaddafi himself will go underground as a saddam (who knows how many bunkers he has throughout Libya), or maybe he will go to someone, maybe to Belarus or Iran

      Rather, he made a deal, it’s not in vain that the data on Gaddafi’s financing of European leaders have not yet been published. Or does someone think that out of respect the extremely dirty hands licked by the same people who are the loudest call for him to be destroyed? Although he will probably be thrown and eventually killed as Sadam, but not before they notice the traces.

    Apparently, the matter went on watch ... We bet, gentlemen, on one of the 3 options for the future fate of Muammar Gaddafi:
    - will die in an unequal battle with weapons in his hands wassat ;
    - will run away wink ;
    - will be captured by the rebels am .
    I put on the "run away." Your opinion?

      He will run away and after a year they will cease to pay attention to him, after 2 they will give him to the Hague tribunal.

    Hold on to Gaddafi, time is working for you. NATO will soon be torn, there is confidence that Gaddafi will be tired anyway and this battle will become a catastrophe for NATO in every sense
