BEIRUT, September 16 (Itar-Tass) — Supporters of the new Libyan authorities again entered the city of Bani-Walid from the north on Friday. According to Al Jazeera, Bani Walid, one of the last few strongholds of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, situated 180 kilometres south of Tripoli, was strongly shelled on Friday morning. A military source in the Transitional National Council (TNC) explained that volley-fire weapon systems were used after they learned that most of the 100,000 residents left Bani Walid.
Some 1,200 men from Gaddafi’s battalions and tribal troops are defending the city. Strategic heights around Bani Walid remain in their hands, which gives them certain advantages. Hopes of the TNC command that a rebellion against “Gaddafi supporters” would flare up in the city proved to be futile, and the TNC detachments resumed the offensive, which was interrupted on Saturday.
