The center of the closest city to Tripoli had been retaken from forces royal to Muammar Gaddafi by Libyan rebels on Wednesday evening (March 9, 2011) after some of the fiercest fighting in nearly three-week clashes. Responding this action, the forces loyal to Moammar Gadhafi struck an oil pipeline and oil storage facility, which sent a giant yellow fireball into the sky when they attacked rebels with artillery and gunfire in two major cities Zawiya and Ras Lanuf. Consequently, many people were killed, including old people, women and children.
Now, let’s take a look at some pictures that describe the Libyan fierce fighting on March 9, 2011.
