    •  
    • 2011 – March 27 Libya: Rebels take Ras Lanuf, Brega , Uqayla, Bin Jawad Libyan rebels have recaptured four more towns and are moving quickly towards Muammar Gaddafi's heartland of Sirte. They seized the eastern coastal towns of Ras Lanuf, Brega, Uqayla and Bin Jawad after pro-Gaddafi forces withdrew, under pressure from allied air strikes. The rebels had recaptured the port of Ajdabiya on Saturday. US, French, British and other allied aircraft started attacking Libyan government troops eight days ago. The military coalition was assembled after the UN Security Council authorised action to protect civilians. Nato members are meeting in Brussels on Sunday evening, with the alliance expected to discuss the rules of engagement in Libya and expanding its operation. After capturing Ajdabiya on Saturday, the rebels have advanced west along the coastal highway at breakneck speed. A string of towns has fallen to them easily - Brega, Ugayla and now Ras Lanuf where we are now. One rebel commander said that Colonel Gaddafi's forces are running for their lives, scattering in all directions in full retreat. He says that with the help of God the rebels could be in Sirte by Monday - but that's probably optimistic. Sirte is the Libyan leader's birthplace and stronghold, his heartland. From now on the going will get much tougher for the rebels. After days of stalemate the rebels have finally gathered some momentum, even if it's only because they've had so much help from coalition air strikes that have destroyed Colonel Gaddafi's tanks and artillery on the ground. march 24 - Libya's rebels begin forming a government NATO ships patrolled off Libya's coast Wednesday as airstrikes, missiles and energized rebels forced Moammar Gadhafi's tanks to roll back from two key western cities, including one that was the hometown of army officers who tried to overthrow him in 1993. Libya's opposition took haphazard steps to form a government in the east, as they and the U.S.-led force protecting them girded for prolonged and costly fighting. The withdrawal of the tanks from Misrata and Zintan was a rare success for the rebels, who are struggling daily against Gadhafi forces in the eastern gateway city of Ajdabiya. The disorganized opposition holds much of the east but has been unable to take advantage of the international air campaign that saved it from the brink of defeat.
