Libya - Fight for Oil Resources

رويترز: الثوار الليبيون يسيطرون بالكامل على مدينة مصراته بعد صد هجوم من كتائب القذافي
"According to Reuters [news agency] Libyan rebels are in control of
the whole town of Misrata after throwing back an attack [launched]
by Gadafi's units." [Al-Jazeera]

CNN reported that government troops at Misrata were thrown back
despite being well equipped with tanks and artillery.

According to CNN and Al-Jazeera, the region between Brega and
Ras Lanuf, most important for the shipping of all East Libyan crude
oil is now under control of the insurgent forces.
Meanwhile, rebel forces are sticked at Bin-Jawad on their way to
Sirte, held up by Gadafi units that are heavily armed with tanks
and artillery.

At the same time in Tripolis, desinformed citizens in favour of
Gadafi are celebrating his alleged "victory" at Misrata and Ras
Lanuf, - a ghostly scene.

Near Benghazi, the explosion of an ammunition depot three days ago
has been related to a pro-Gadafi attack by witnesses cited by CNN.
At the time, Al-Jazeera reported it as some kind of accident without
certain evidence of enemy involvement. Therefore, I didn't include
it in my daily news report. Nevertheless the nightly pictures of
ambulances carrying away the dead and the wounded can still be
watched on the attached Al-Jazeera video.
