Libyan anti-Khaddafy fighters continue to assemble on the outskirts of Bani Walid for an expected push into the well-defended pro-Khaddafy stronghold. Libyan fighters have encountered stiff resistance in Bani Walid, including by highly trained snipers.

Pro-Khaddafy commandos are also conducting hit-and-run strikes from the city on Libyan forces. Libya's new government says the pro-Khaddafy forces appear to be highly trained. Only a handful of territory remains in the hands of pro-Khaddafy forces.
