Fighting continues unabated in Benghazi, particularly in the southern districts of Abu Hadima and Laithi, as well as al-Sabri (near the maritime port) and in downtown Benghazi around Venice Street. Although Operation Dignity forces continue to claim victories in the Laithi district, a long-time Ansar al-Shari’a stronghold, Benghazi Revolutionaries Shura Council (BRSC) forces appear to have strengthened their military capabilities in the past weeks and a BRSC defeat in its home turf seems unlikely.
