AJDABIYAH, Libya - Muammar Gaddafi's forces fired rockets on Sunday at Libyan rebels stationed outside the eastern strategic town of Ajdabiyah, witnesses said.
One witness said he saw around a dozen rockets land around the western gateway to the town, a focus of weeks of back-and-forth clashes with Gaddafi loyalists. Many rebels fled the attack."There are still some guys (rebels) out there at the western gate but the situation isn't very good," said Wassim el-Agouri, a 25-year-old rebel volunteer waiting at Ajdabiyah's eastern gate.
A Reuters reporter standing near the eastern gate heard several explosions boom across the town.
