My map is not an exact representation of the true situation but a schematic reflecting my limited state of knowledge.
As for the map: No big changes but since I have a better idea about the location of the field hospital and since I heard several days ago that the latter was then 6 km from the front line, I was able to move forward the line on my map by this distance. For the other axis of advance, I don’t have any new information so I moved the front line on my map just a tiny bit to be on the safe side. Other than that I’ve introduced a new symbol, one for drones. Not so good 1 crashed, but good that they are there watching the regime troops.
The two latter links are in line with my criticism of NATO for speculating to much on a regime breakdown &/or uprising in Tripoli & thus spending to much ressources on Tripoli instead of Misrata, the Nafusa Mountains & Brega while people suffer there.
What’s more? Oh yes I almost forgot: I need to explain that report on a regime ‘advance’ near ad-Dafniya & what I wrote on it in the Update: This comes from a doctor in the field hospital who mentioned to Reuter that the regime troops were advancing by 1 km. I doubt this report a bit since the FFs often advance by several km, then retreat by about half that while fortifying the newly gained half of the distance with shipping containers, trenches and sand berms. I have seen other instances at this exact front were reporters have misunderstood the situation despite being at the front. So it’s quite possible that the reporter just misunderstood the doctor. If there had been a real regime advance we should have heard it from other sources as well, which we didn’t.
Also, so far the FFs have always pushed forward since the uprising in Zliten some two weeks ago. I don’t remember one day were any net retreat resulted in the end of the day. So that’s why I doubt this isolated report even when coming from a professional journalist on the front.
