"Hours after taking control of Bani Walid, a former stronghold of Muammar Gaddafi, Libyan militias from the rival city of Misrata fired ferociously at its empty public buildings.
Fighters yelling “Allahu akbar” and “Today Bani Walid is finished” sought to make their mark with gunfire and rocket-propelled grenades on a town they say still provides a refuge to many of the overthrown Libyan leader’s followers.
The chaotic, vengeful scenes demonstrated the weakness of the new government’s authority over former rebel militias which owe it allegiance but essentially do what they like. read more
Islamo-fascim in Libya Reuters was yielding with rebels, always accepting as a truth their lies, like almost all the msm did last year. Something is changing. With the inanity of political figures devoid of ideals and sense of the state now emerges disappointment, with the fear that these gangs will never be stopped. (...) "
" Libya surged further into chaos yesterday as fighting resumed in a former stronghold of Colonel Muammar al-Gaddafi, and troops fired over the heads of refugees trying to return home.
The thump of rockets and crash of anti-aircraft guns from inside the town of Bani Walid confirmed that battles between the army and pro-Gaddafi elements were continuing despite the government’s insistence it had captured the town.
Outside the town refugees, told to return home by state television, found the desert highway blocked by an impromptu army checkpoint where teenage government militiamen opened fire over their heads, triggering panic and sending men, women and children running for their lives.
“This is a crazy situation, they are firing over us,” said 29-year-old Mohammed Hamzen. “The government told us we can go home, what is this?”
The battle for Bani Walid was launched last week with government forces saying they wanted to capture an estimated 300 Gaddafi loyalists who had made the town their home – it remains the last town in Libya outside central control. (...) "
Nos informan que durante la tarde y la noche del 25 al 26 de octubre, la ciudad de Bani Walid fue bombardeada indiscriminadamente por aviones provenientes de Misrata y aviones de la fuerzas aéreas del régimen de ocupación de Libia. Se utilizaron bombas de fósforo blanco y Gas Sarin en contra de los defensores de Bani Walid y civiles.
El retiro de las tropas del régimen ocupante después del anuncio de la falsa victoria. Debemos recordar que la historia de Sirte y Trípoli se repite, porque las bestias “rebeldes” por si solas no podían entrar a Bani Walid, la OTAN y Qatar han utilizado sus aviones, los aviones fueron pintados con los colores del régimen de ocupación colonialista. Asimismo, se ha constatado que una vez más se han utilizado las Fuerzas Especiales extranjeras, al menos, testigo ocular informó acerca de Qatar y las fuerzas especiales Jordanas, luchando contra los defensores de Bani Walid.
So, Mr. Ban Ki-moon speaks out against the violence in Libya where pro-occupation gangs of terrorists continue to run amok spreading chaos, panic, murdering, torching, looting, torturing and raping, the same terrorists backed by the west, bombing civilians and the latest shocking news, deploying chemical weapons. Where has the UN been?
So, the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, or rather FUKUS Axis (France, UK, US) collaborationist Ban Ki-moon, has called for a peace process to solve the crisis in Bani Walid, where loyalists to the Jamahiriya Government of Colonel al-Qadhafi, as in many other areas of the country, resist heroically against NATO's pro-occupation terrorist gangs and in defence of their homeland which under al-Qadhafi provided for them.
The Jamahiriya government provided free education and healthcare, free housing, utilities, studies abroad, staple foodstuffs all in a democratic system in which the State provided for the needs of the People's Councils. Even oil revenue was injected directly into people's ban accounts. And the new NATO-imposed regime? In one word, terrorism. (...)"
The Libyan city of Bani Walid is reported to be under heavy attack from pro-government forces and militias. Witnesses say that more civilians are being killed by shelling, while houses are engulfed in flames.
Amid conflicting reports that the Libyan city of Bani Walid was captured by army forces, RT has learned that 600 people were allegedly killed in Wednesday’s fighting, and over 1,000 have been hospitalized.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday claimed social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, where al-Qaeda affiliated terrorist groups, within hours via postings, claimed responsibility for the attacks that killed U.S.
The humanitarian situation remains difficult for the people of Bani Walid in Libya. To help those who fled the city after heavy clashes this week, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is working with the Libyan Red Crescent to distribute food, drinking water, medicine and other essential items to more than 10,000 people in the nearby cities of Tarhuna and Orban.
" Washington bears full responsibility for waging multiple wars on humanity. It planned, initiated and controls direct and proxy conflicts across North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia.
Bani Walid made headlines for three weeks. Genocide threatens its residents. Obama's dirty hands are all over this crime of war and against humanity. Media scoundrels ignore it. More on this below.
America's proxy war on Syria continues. Washington's directly responsible for recruiting, arming, funding and directing Syrian death squads.
On October 24, Voice of Russia reported that Russian Armed Forces chief General Nikolai Makarov said:
"The General Staff has information that the militants, who are fighting against Syrian government troops, are armed with the portable air defence systems of various countries, including the Stinger of U.S. production." (...)
The besieged Libyan city of Bani Walid has been plunged into chaos. Several sources told RT the former Gaddafi regime stronghold is under attack by militias bolstered by foreign mercenaries, and they used banned weapons like white phosphorous.
"The final presidential debate earlier this week was a tailor-made opportunity for Mitt Romney to rip into President Obama's inconsistent, value-free and at times incoherent foreign policy. And it was also an opportunity for the president to explain his administration's material misrepresentations on the murders of our ambassador and others in Libya. Instead, we heard silence from both of them on this topic.
One can conclude from this that the president uttered a silent sigh of relief when he dodged a bullet. And one can conclude that Romney wanted to look and sound presidential and emphasize his economic credentials and allay fears that he wants another war. Whatever the gain and whatever the strategy, this matter of American deaths in Libya is of vital importance to American voters. (...) "
"As violence in Bani Walid continues for the 21st day, very few western media outlets appear interested in reporting on what some are calling a humanitarian catastrophe. The silence is a far cry from the situation last year, when Libya and Colonel Gaddafi’s forces made front page news. Today’s situation is much worse…the number of people killed since NATO intervened has gone up by ten to twenty times. We’ve got massacres going on at the moment and there’s complete silence in the UK and the US, journalist and author Neil Clark told RT. Anytime there is a hint that the Syrian government has chemical weapons, it’s front page news on all the western channels. But this story about Libya just isn’t news, he said. Clark spoke to RT about the alleged double standards of the western media when it comes to Libya and Syria. RT: There's yet been no international response to the fact that civilians are being killed in Bani Walid, especially from those states that backed the revolution in Libya a year ago. Why is that? Neil Clark: Let’s think back to February 2011. We couldn’t pick up a newspaper in the UK or the US or put on the BBC or CNN without hearing about what was going on in Libya. The Humanitarian disaster, we were told Colonel Gaddafi’s forces were killing lots of people, there were dangers of a massive massacre in Benghazi, and because of that we went to war…that was the reason for war. And today, the situation is much worse. We’ve got a humanitarian catastrophe taking place. The number of people killed since NATO intervened has gone up by ten to twenty times. We’ve got massacres going on at the moment and there’s complete silence here in the UK and in the US. (...)
