Battle of Bab Al Azziziyah, Gaddafi Headquarters, Begins
22/08/2011 08:33:00
Early Monday morning Libyan rebels began their battle against Muammar Al Qathafi's forces in the highly fortified Bab Al-Azziziyah barracks in Tripoli.

There are unconfirmed reports that Gaddafi could very well be inside the barracks directing the remaining of his forces. But rebel spokesmen voiced doubt at the presence of Gaddafi in this headquarters making it seem insignificant militarily.

There are speculations that Gaddafi could be somewhere in unknown location in the capital or he might even be in the south of the country.

But Nab Al Snazzily remains a symbol of Al Qathafi's oppression of his people for 42 years.

The forces withdrawn yesterday from Tripoli streets under pressure from the rebels’ attack and took refuge there.

Eyewitnesses reported that a tank moved out of the barracks and fired aimlessly at nearby buildings in Sidi Khalifa area.

There are expectations that today’s battle will be rather heavy.
