A Libyan rebel commander say Moammar Gadhafi's troops are bombarding opposition forces controlling a key border crossing with Tunisia.
Omar Hussein, a spokesman for rebels in the western Nafusa mountains, says government forces in the al-Ghazaya area were targeting rebels holding the road that leads toward the Dehiba border crossing, according to Atlanta Journal Constitution.
The last time Libyan forces fired rockets into Tunisia, on May 17, the Tunisian government threatened to report Libya to the UN Security Council for committing "enemy actions". "At least five rockets fell on Tunisian soil today in the Mrabeh.
It was a heavy bombardment from Gaddafi's side of the mountains," said resident Mohammed Nagez, a local trader, informs Guardian.
