Libyans Condemn Slaughter of Civilians in Attack on Bani Walid

Protests continue across the country as well as outside the Tripoli `General National Congress` in spite of the recent use of machine guns and anti-aircraft guns to disperse demonstrators incensed at the attacks on Bani Walid

Tripoli, the capital city of Libya is the scene of mass protests against the indiscriminate bombing of Bani Walid, where up to 100 civilians have died and hundreds been wounded, many be illegal chemical weapons, according to recounts published today.

The town has been under siege for many weeks and subjected to rocket attacks from far outside the city but in recent days an assault has taken place on the town attempting to subdue its population to the “authority” of the Tripoli based “ratverment”.

Protests are gathering momentum across the country after the President of the Ratverment, CIA agent of 30 years who returned to Libya only this past year, Mohamed Megarief, tried to get to the town, gave up due to a hail of artillery projectiles, including reactive rockets fired from three positions by militias.

Libyan police and ratverment military forces in Tripoli armed with machine guns and anti-aircraft guns kept protesters away from the venue of the ratverment’s Congress, where they shot at least one protester at a similar protest when some 500 briefly entered the building before being turned back by machine gun fire from Megarief’s guards.

Libya: US Blocks Russian UN Resolution of Bani Walid Violence

The United States has blocked a draft statement, proposed by Russia, on the resolution of violence in the Libyan town of Bani Walid, which has been under siege for weeks. The statement called for a peaceful solution to the conflict.

Russia’s envoy to the UN, Vitaly Churkin said the move “can’t be serious,”reminding the American delegation of the deadly attack in Benghazi that claimed the lives of four US diplomats in September.

“Blocking a draft statement that called to solve the country’s political problems without violence is very strange,” Churkin said. “This is a case when it is difficult to explain the US delegation’s actions in rational terms.”

The statement drafted by Russia on Bani Walid called on the Libyan authorities “to take urgent steps to resolve the conflict by peaceful means and to preserve the rights of all Libyan citizens.” It also expressed concern about the significant escalation of violence in and around the city of Bani Walid in recent days. 

Lawrence Freeman, from news magazine Executive Intelligence Review says the US will block any peaceful solution to the ongoing violence in Libya, because stability in the region is not in its interests. Continue reading

Bani Walid civilians bombed with gas

RT

Pro-government militias intercept food, fuel and medicine and use grad rockets and gas weapons against Bani Walid, a man whose family remains in the town told RT. He claims the daily shelling of the town is Misrata militias’ attempt to eliminate it.

Several hundreds of Bani Walid natives marched to the seat of the national parliament in Tripoli on Sunday to protest the assault on their home town, which has been continuing for over two weeks. The protesters demanded a peaceful solution to “the tribal war that is happening in the town.” The demonstrators, however, failed to enter the parliament, being dispersed by guards firing rounds into the air.

Pro-government forces and militias besieged the hilltop town of Bani Walid following the death of former rebel Omran Shaban. Shaban is credited for capturing the country’s ex-leader, Muammar Gaddafi, in October 2011. The Warfalla tribe controlling Bani Walid has been accused of kidnapping and torturing the former rebel.

Libya’s government has been empowered by the congress to use force to arrest those suspected of killing Shaban. Since the rebel was a Misrata native, Misrata militias joined the assault on Bani Walid.

The joint forces have been shelling Bani Walid almost non-stop since early October. At least 26 people died and over 200 more were injured in Saturday clashes alone, according to AFP. Gunfire and sporadic blasts continued into Sunday, and an AFP photographer says he saw hundreds of people were fleeing the besieged town.

Bani Walid commanders accuse the pro-government troops and militias of “shelling the town with long-range weapons and even targeting the hospital.”

One of them, Commander Salem al-Waer, said ­“They are pushing Libya towards civil war. Libya will become a second Somalia. Why are they putting tribes against each other?”

Bani Walid: La ville où Kadhafi est martyr

Dévastée par les bombardements de l’Otan, tenue à l’écart par les rebelles qui ne la contrôlent qu’à distance, la cité libyenne, entretient sa flamme kadhafiste et rêve ouvertement de revanche.

Par JEAN-LOUIS LE TOUZET Envoyé spécial à Bani Walid (Libye)

Il n’y a plus rien d’intact sur ce mamelon ocre qui est tombé le 11 octobre après deux mois de siège. Et pourtant Bani Walid, à 170 km au sud au Tripoli, brûle toujours pour le colonel Kadhafi sous la cendre des combats. Un panneau métallique dentelé par les tirs «Tous avec toi, Guide de notre Révolution» a résisté aux assauts des rebelles à mi-pente du lacet qui conduit à la mosquée dont le minaret semble étoilé par les impacts de balles.

Il n’y a plus rien à Bani Walid : ni vent, ni banque, ni commerce, ni hôtel, ni administration, juste un café-épicerie avec des types épuisés et silencieux. Le cœur de Bani Walid s’est arrêté net comme la fabrique de tapis en moquette à l’effigie du Guide. Ils servent maintenant de paillasson aux Tripolitains.

La nouvelle révolution a relégué ici dans l’oubli la précédente. L’aigle noir, symbole de Kadhafi, a été arrêté dans son vol de ferraille par des milliers de douilles de cuivre qui jonchent le macadam. A la sortie sud, une futaie de charpentes brisées et des tôles qui miaulent. De la caserne pulvérisée par les bombardements, qui s’étendait sur 10 Continue reading

The News Of Libya (October 17th 22h30)

Tripoli: Heavy fighting took place around the Tripoli International Airport. NATO aircraft flew over the place, but we do not know “who” bombed. Resistance seems to dominate the situation, so that the majority of the rebels returned to find refuge inside the airport building. Among them, many foreign “instructors”. In the district of Abu Salim, five families in whom the renegades have found weapons were murdered, 15 members belonging to these five families were all killed by armed rebels.

Zliten : The people who fiercely defends the city again asked the renegades to disappear. Thus, a small minority of recalcitrant were attacked and forced to flee.

Beni Walid : Another failure for the renegades. Yesterday, the city was quiet, but now the rats have attempted penetration by the West, but this attempt ended in a failure. 10 killed and others fled. Heavy equipments were recovered by the resistance.

Ghadames : The Renegades tried to bribe the Tuareg tribes with millions of dollars to ask them to deliver Gaddafi suspected of being under their protection. Refusal with the added bonus of a warning no one thinks to bomb their homes.

Sirte : This city is waiting to be completely destroyed and wiped out of the map and its population is waiting for a complete extermination, the city continues its heroic resistance. This is truly the pride of all Libya and all decent people around the world.

Dr. Moussa Ibrahim about Bani Walid: “Do not believe their lies … “

 United States of Africa (LVO):  The news spread by the propaganda that the rebels entered Bani Walid is untrue, as usual.

After checking with the spokesman of the legitimate government of Libya, Dr. Moussa Ibrahim, we can reconfirm that the NATO mercenaries who tried to approach the city suffered heavy losses life and were forced to flee the fire intensity.

The Dr.Ibramim said:

“Now, mercenaries from NATO, are only bombarding the city from afar. ” 

Dr. Moussa Ibrahim said  :

“Do not believe their lies, every morning they show pictures and say that Bani Walid was controlled, and when we call to check, the city’s response is that “we are in a festive ceremony because we have defeated them, and inflicted them heavy losses, and even celebrate with the families of some of them 

Moussa concluded:

“I just contacted Bani Walid and they have assured us of this new and Allah Akbar and Glory to God and victory to Allah”

To be continued …

LIBYE: LES DERNIERES NOUVELLE DU FRONT 17.10.11

by Allain Julles

Avec la même cadence, l’organisation terroriste du nom d’OTAN poursuit ses bombardements à Syrte. La défaite leur est insupportable, d’autant plus que la résistance est féroce. Alors que Syrte ressemble de plus en plus à Dresde voire Hiroshima, les soldats de l’apocalypse trouve que les patriotes doivent se rendre alors que sur le terrain, ne possédant pas de l’armement d’en face, ils sont meilleurs. La disproportion des forces ne leur fait pas peur.

Les pseudo défenseurs des droits de l’homme sont aux abonnés absents. Ils ne s’expriment plus, comme tétanisés face à la barbarie qui se joue en Libye. Ceux qui légitiment cette guerre injuste, même s’ils ne passeront jamais devant un tribunal pour payer leurs crimes, seront jugés d’une façon ou d’une autre.

LIBYA: THE NIGHT THAT KILLED THE LIES

By Dr. Christof LEHMANN at nsnbc

20111016-102619.jpg

Most of Tripoli is Liberated, Sirte is holding on, Bani Walid, Sabah, Zliten, and countless other cities are free. As morning came to Libya the results of the onset of a new stage of the Libyan Liberation become undeniable. While Libyans mourn the death of those fallen in the fight for liberation, the TNC and NATO mourn massive losses of territory, troops, and trust. NATO and the TNC lost over 1.000 fighters, and over 1.500 are wounded. Their greatest casualty how ever, are the Lies about Libya, which were put to rest by the new phase of Libya´s Liberation
