Rebels claim to have destroyed two Gaddafi warships
Anti-government activists said Tuesday that rebels commanding fighter jets have destroyed two of Moamer Gaddafi's warships off the northeast coast of Ajdabiya, dpa reported
The opposition also claimed to have hit a third naval ship in the air attack, according to opposition website Libya al-Youm.
A number of army generals and soldiers, particularly in the Libyan Air Force, have defected to join the rebels and have an arsenal of weapons and fighter jets at their disposal.
The alleged attack comes as Gaddafi's forces continue to battle for control of Ajdabiya and the nearby city of Brega in order to advance on to the opposition stronghold of Benghazi.
