To Ben Jawad, they are always fighting in the city, but the Libyan forces always seem to have the control of the city. The rebel’s forces wish to take again the control of the city, located in an oil area, with for objective the attack of the cities of Sirte and Tripoli.

Several cities are controlled by the opposition, but are constantly bombarded by the aviation of Colonel Kadhafi. The city of Zawouia was taken under the artillery fire, and is encircled.

Meanwhile, the rebels said they had been approached by pro-Gaddafi officials offering to hold talks on an exit for the Libyan leader.
