Libya rebels take casualties

2011-07-10 13:29

Benghazi - Libyan rebel troops advancing into the loyalist stronghold of Zliten said on Sunday they lost one fighter and had 32 wounded by landmines laid by Muammar Gaddafi's retreating troops.

Insurgents pressing out westward from the long-besieged city of Misrata said the ordnance was laid by Gaddafi loyalists falling back from their positions around Zliten.

"One of our fighters became a martyr and 32 others were hurt after an anti-personnel mine was placed by the forces of Muammar Gaddafi in their old positions in the Suq al-Thulatha neighbourhood of Zliten," the rebels said in a statement to AFP.

Zliten, once considered a bastion of Gaddafi forces, is a key link on the road from rebel-held Misrata to the capital Tripoli.

    Well done Gaddafi forces. We are proud of you. Kill all these western backed traitors who want to sell africa the zionists. North Atlantic Terrorist Organisation (NATO)has already failed its plans to steal our precious oil fro Libya. Down with traitors and puppets. Never give these terrorists any chance, kill them before they kill you.
