Babak Dehghanpisheh reports:

[I]t’s up to the rebels to ensure that this territory, which was regained with coalition help, doesn’t fall back into Gaddafi’s hands. It won’t be easy: Rebel fighters are currently pinned down by government loyalists some 50 miles west of Ras Lanuf. The hospital in Ras Lanuf, which is the closest to the frontline, received five bodies Mondaytwo were fighters killed on the battlefield and the other three were rebel detainees who had been executed with a single shot to the back of the head. As loyalists hold their ground, the conflict could drag on and become even bloodier.
