Kadhfi force attacks Tripoli airport
Rebels call for NATO help

Herald Sun

August 26, 2011


Libyan rebels called in support from NATO jets to stop a counteroffensive by loyalist troops in Tripoli in the early hours of today.

Forces loyal to the elusive Muammar Gaddafi staged two counterattacks at around 2am local time near the Bab al Aziziya compound and the Rixos hotel in central Tripoli, seemingly in a bid to reposition snipers to stem the rebel advance, Sky News reported quoting a rebel source.

The rebels called for assistance from NATO, and the alliance "destroyed" one of the counterattacks, the rebel source said. But one of the counteroffensives was successful, slowing the rebel push on the remaining pockets of resistance. Rebels were preparing for a renewed push to clear the area.

The Rixos hotel was where foreign journalists were forced to stay during the uprising, and a group of several dozen reporters were held there by Gaddafi gunmen for several days earlier this week.

NATO yesterday denied coordinating with the rebels and targeting Gaddafi, after Britain said the alliance was helping to hunt him down.

The situation in Tripoli remained tense today. The water supply to the city was cut off, and food was running low. Residents were organising neighborhood watch efforts to root out snipers, and an increasing number of road blocks made travel around the city difficult.

The Transitional National Council (TNC) is now governing from the capital, having moved its headquarters there from the rebel stronghold of Benghazi in the east.

The whereabouts of Gaddafi was still unclear. Rebels said yesterday that they had surrounded Gaddafi in a residential area of Tripoli, but there was no sign of the despot, who later issued another defiant audio message.

Libyan rebels called in support from NATO jets to stop a counteroffensive by loyalist troops in Tripoli in the early hours of Friday, as the fight continued for full control of the city.

Rebels fighting in the east were still attempting to push on Sirte, but were struggling to overcome a fierce defense in Bin Jawad and As Sidr.
