Hay Andalus in the Battle for Tripoli

May 17, 2012

This is a lesser post I'm starting to bring together a few vague points and perhaps more. The issue of what happened in the Al-Andalus neighborhood. It started with the victims list from the mysterious morphing Qasr Ben Ghashir prison incident. One Arabic listing of the six killed (two doctors and four military officers (just as hospitals were being emtied with deadly force and the military crushed as much as possible).

An additional five names were listed as - اسماء منفدين الاعدام - auto-translate: names Mnfdan death. As an aside until I understand the meaning, five more names are listed -taking Petri's auto-translation:
The names of the dead from [Mnfdan (?)]:

1) Mohamed Abdel-Qader Tagouri –"محمد عبد القادر التاجوري" – a police officer known as a keeper over Alsberati.

2) Abdul Salam Altarhuni–
3) Wajdi Zawi – "وجدي الزاوي
4) Ibrahim Allohh Tagouri – "ابراهيم اللوشة التاجوري"
5) Hamza Al-Surmani [Google gives Abmana - thanks to Hurriya for correcting me] – "حمزة الصرماني" – follower of Mohamed Mansour Dou

I still don't feel like I understand what "Mnfdan" means, but Hurriya points to a video (#21 on Petri's Libyan Rebels playlist) where it's associated with the Al-Andalus neighborhood (Hay Andalus). This is supposedly a higher-class neighborhood where regime loyalists were known to live, perhaps attacked by prisoners from Abu Salim released when NATO bombed the facility's gates.

Hurriya alerts me that "Higher loyalists , special from hay andalus , disappeared at the same time as the shed events and the freeing of the abu saleem prison." She wonders if there might be a link between some of these people removed and the 45-50 bodies charred completely blank in the Khamis Brigade shed massacre. It's an interesting thought, but I have little idea what it might be based on - how many missing, and who, etc. ?

 To start, Hurriya's previous offerings collected, which I'll offer a space for more comments and ideas, and come back to it.

 The relatives of one victim, Abdul Raouf Al Rashdi, a 33-year-old police officer, said he had been killed by a sniper several days earlier in the Hay Andalus neighborhood. http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/11239/1170396-82-0.stm?cmpid=news.xml#ixzz1gMcorduA

 The freed thousands of Abu saleem prison directed immediately to Hay Andalus . If the burned victims and shed victims are the same : then it explains why they were burned [ 2 times] beyound recognition and why no one has undertaken a research.

    Shortly after taking Janzur, rebels from the Tripoli Brigade took control of the the Gheryan bridge, considered the western entrance to Tripoli proper, and entered the Syhia district and began clearing it.

    They took Hay al Andalus area shortly after and immediately advanced into Gergraish area of Central Tripoli.[44]

  3. [5) Hamza Abmana – "حمزة الصرماني" – follower of Mohamed Mansour Dou

    Felix :
    - I don't know why حمزة الصرماني auto translates as it does.
    The name is Al-Surmani or Al-Sormani (from the town of Sorman - صرمان‎

    For instance, the Guardian reported a murder in May 2011 of a former member of Libya's internal security agency, Ibrahim Khalifa al-Surmani, (tenuous connection with Mansour Daw there)

  5. What happened August 21?
    EXCLUSIVE | Rebels stormed Palm City in hunt for Gaddafi
    Maltese eyewitnesses told MaltaToday that on the evening of Sunday 21 August, some 200 fully-armed rebel fighters shot their way through the gates of the Corinthia-owned luxury residential resort in Janzour in search of the Gaddafis, just one hour after the Bab Al-Aziziya compound had fallen.

    One of the tweeters sent out the registration plates of the Chevrolets in which Gaddafi loyalists fled Palm City, while another said that looting was taking place inside the complex during a gun battle with rebels.

    The same eyewitness said rebel commanders inside Palm City had told him they are expected to vacate Palm City, because Benghazi leaders are to set up their interim government there.

    1. An independent Libyan news channel reported some looting at the expatriate Palm City village, just outside of Tripoli, but this could not be confirmed.[70]

    Abdel Karim Gadoora, a former interior ministry surveillance officer :

    In Abu Slim, there were 9 gangs and 143 people with weapons, it says; there were 170 in the rebel stronghold of Souk al-Jumaa and 45 in the wealthy, diplomatic neighborhood of Hay al Andalus.

  7. Q) Does this mean a person could be executed without trial?

    A) Yes, without trial. What will the court do for us! Will it give you your rights! The court will sentence the perpetrator to seven or eight years imprisonment and then he will be set free.

    Do you know that we will be questioned by the martyrs on Judgment Day! They will say to us, “why did you not take back our rights on our behalf?”!

    Q) Did you participate in the liberation of Tripoli?

    A) I am proud to say that I was first of those who was injured on the 20 August.
    The Derna battalion was the first to enter Tripoli. We consisted of a group of 65, headed by Abdul Hakim Belhaj.
    I was wounded in my foot, but despite the injury, I managed to complete the mission with my colleagues.

    The field commanders in rank were, Belhaj, Abdurrazaq Naami and Abdul Aalim. The later stayed in Tarhouna after Tripoli was liberated; he was Belhaj’s deputy. He lived in Britain for a long time where he worked as a company manager.

    estimates that his unit has captured some 35 high-value detainees, including several ministers and Gaddafi aides

    But when the rebels breached the walls of Ain Zara prison two weeks ago, the 49-year-old businessman emerged as an influential player in the new Libya. His self-appointed task: hunting senior officials of Muammar Gaddafi's regime.

    Sherrif's undertakes its own interrogations before transferring its captives to Matega.

    Colonel Salim Sharif the air-defense officer says as he welcomes his fighters who have just returned from patrolling the neighborhoods of Tajura

  9. Other veterans of Abu Salim man the Mukhabarat chief’s office, now the temporary base for an ad hoc squad in revolutionary Libya’s fledgling national army that is charged with hunting fugitive officials suspected of crimes.

    They have caught several dozen so far.


  10. A team of Reuters journalists visited a house in the capital's Zenata district where Dorda,
    a former prime minister, was held by members of a unit of anti-Gaddafi fighters who call themselves Brigades of the Martyr Abdelati Ghaddour.

    Dorda was kept in the downstairs living room of a private house, which was guarded by about 20 fighters clad in battle fatigues and armed with assault rifles.


    Revolutionaries based at the Al-Jawda Macaroni Factory on the outskirts of Tripoli, where Dorda was injured, gave varying accounts of how he had plunged to the concrete pavement.

    One, Marwan Ardawi, said that Dorda had been moved continually from house to house because of his importance. He was taken to the factory in the suburb of Ein Zara on Tuesday, and plummeted from the window at 5 p.m. during a break in his interrogation, Ardawi said.

      In fact, Ghaddour was aware that Omar was being held in Yarmouk —

    1. Saif's farm was smashed to pieces by a NATO air strike last Thursday.

      The missile failed to kill a single Gaddafi, instead collapsing Saif's mansion on two men and a child who had come to visit after hearing the place was abandoned.


      "The chef here left last Monday, so why was NATO bombing it?" asked Hassan Mohamed al-Ghebli, who had arrived with a team of volunteers and a bulldozer to remove the bodies, one of whom was his brother, a neighbor of the Moroccan chef.

  16. Fighting is expected in farming areas (south of Tripoli) in the coming hours or days.

    1. But Qaddafi’s desert “paradise” is also blighted by the sight and stench of decomposing bodies.

      “I was searching from my brother, who has been missing along with his son and a friend,” said Hassan Mohammed, pointing to the corpses of an adult and a child.

    2. Fascinating. A killed child is pretty rare, AFAIK, even in Libyan rebel offensive zones. (Syrian rebels, another story apparently) Here's one, with an adult, implicitly taken captive by loyalists and killed. Missing anyway.
      Who killed them? A man and a child and supposedly a friend... Comment right above, uncanny work:
      The missile failed to kill a single Gaddafi, instead collapsing Saif's mansion on two men and a child who had come to visit after hearing the place was abandoned.
      Right timeframe. NATO killed them in a pointless bombing that couldn't have even killed Seif's chef.

  17. Abdel Salam Abu Zaakouk said that heavy fighting was under way in a farm belonging to the chief of staff of the Libyan armed forces, Abdul Rahman al-Sayed.

    "He (Sayd) is leading the battle with the rebels and he is still inside the farm," Abu Zaakouk told the Dubai-based channel without giving further details.

    2. Armed criminals ‘targeting foreigners’ in Tripoli suburb

      By George Grant. Tripoli, 1 June:

      A growing number of expatriates living in Tripoli’s wealthy Serraj district are falling victim to armed criminals targeting them for their vehicles at gunpoint, residents claim.

      The authorities’ inability to respond to the crimes has prompted one oil and gas services company to contact the Libya Herald directly in an effort to raise awareness.

      The company, which has asked to remain anonymous for security reasons, has had three of its staff targeted in the past two months alone, with all the attacks taking place in broad daylight. It is understood that several similar attacks have also taken place against foreign employees of other companies during this period.

      The most recent attack took place on Tuesday against one of the company managers, a European, directly outside of his house.

      “I had just parked my car in the driveway and got out to open the garage door, leaving the engine running”, he recalls. “Immediately, a white car sped towards me an stopped right in front of me. There were two young guys inside, maybe 20-23 years-old.

      “The one in the passenger seat got out, walked towards me and shook my hand, giving me some salutary bull****. Then he pulled a gun out from behind his back and pointed it at my torso, motioning at me to step back.

      “He moved towards my car, and as soon as I realised he was going to try and steal it, I made to stop him. He pointed his pistol directly at my head. Obviously I backed off.

      “I managed to get the registration number of the other vehicle as they drove off and filed a police report later that night. I was informed that three similar incidents had been reported earlier that day alone. Of course, the authorities have done nothing.”

  27. The rockets struck Afaf Gadhafi's car one day last August. The 38-year-old, a distant relative of former Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, had sought to reach an airport with her family to flee the civil war. But rebels attacked, likely suspecting that the car may have contained Gadhafi or his allies.

    Afaf's daughters, aged two and 19 months, were killed, along with her mother, sister and nephew. Afaf lost an eye and suffered serious injury to her nose and left arm. Her four-year-old son survived only because her sister protected his body with her own.


  28. Seif and her husband Mohammed had once been among the beneficiaries of the Gadhafi regime.
    Her husband worked for the intelligence service and the couple lived with sons Mohammed and Mukhtar in a six-room villa in Tripoli's upscale Andalus neighborhood.

    Seif, a confident woman who once worked as an English translator, said her husband eventually resigned, disgusted by his work, and opened a furniture store in Andalus.

    Libyans in the Hai al-Andalus district set up their own armed patrols they listened to battles which they said were just a mile away.

    He said approaching rebel check points can be frightening because the rebels look untrained and trigger happy.

    But they are unfailingly polite and often speak fluent English.

  32. A house previously belonging to Mohammed Ghadafi, Moamar Ghadafi's eldest son in Hay Alandalus, Tripoli was being used as a meeting place for a number of Ghadafi loyalists who were reportedly using the property as a hideout and meeting place to conduct operations to discredit the new government.

    Hay Alandalus military council arrested a group of 20 Ghadafi loyalists who were using the property as a hideout to plan their operations.

    While questioning one of the individuals who conducted the arrest WB were informed that although the group had weapons they did not see any evidence to suggest they were plotting any campaigns against the government and they were probably just hiding there fearing retaliation.
