Anti-government rebels in Libya are facing the rage of Gaddafi’s forces on two fronts, as the situation in the region starts to deteriorate. Zawiya a town which is just 50 kms away from the capital Tripoli, was under fierce retaliation from the government forces, plus the rebels were fighting back in a very strict manner.
Zawiya was in flames as the forces rammed through the town to take over it, but later the rebels and government forces were claiming to have control over it. Another city which came under the rage of the government was Ras Lanuf a port city in the North.
More than a dozen of people were killed in the fierce gun battle between the two sides, yet the number of casualties is just a prediction. Muammar Gaddafi on the other hand has plans to replace a group of envoys in the cabinet, as they have turned against him. There were messages given to various media around the world stating all the people and forces within Tripoli are completely supporting Gaddafi and his regime.

Anti-government rebels in Libya have said, there shall be no negotiations between Gaddafi and the anti-government protesters until Gaddafi officially steps down. The rebels are even insisting that Gaddafi should go away into exile after he steps down from his post. In addition to this, the International Criminal Court has summoned an investigation over Gaddafi and his sons against humanity crimes.
Tripoli the capital, is nothing less than a war zone and protesters decided to have gatherings after the Friday prayers. The situation in Benghazi was something that has concerned everyone and the National Libyan Council has said now there is no way there could be negotiations with the government, as Gaddafi ordered to bomb the anti -government region, killing many.
Libya’s opposition council has said if there is any negotiations then it will be in context as how Gaddafi would step down. Experts from the west state, both parties in the country stand on neutral grounds, as they will not be able to move artillery and manpower across the vast desert of Libya.
