Reports have been coming in on the social media Twitter claiming that a pilot has defected from Gadaffi's army in a spectacular suicide attempt to take down his stronghold, Baab Al Aziziyah in the heart of Tripoli. The pilot was on a mission with a second plane to bomb cities when the pilot turned his plane around, flew to Tripoli, and attacked the fortress hiding place of Moammar Gadaffi.
He is said to have emptied his weaponry's rounds into the Dictator's barracks as he crashed the plane into it.
New Tweets are also stating that Khamis Gadaffi's son is in the hospital in serious conditions with burns.

Below you will see some more tweets including one claiming a bounty on Gadaffi's head of $60 million - just in case anyone is looking for a job.
Tweets notably are asking for non-disclosure of locations of resistance fighters - who by the way do not want to be called rebels - they are freedom or resistance fighters, they remind us. This is not a civil war - it is a rebellion they reiterate over and over again. A deep sense of disappointment in the ineffectiveness of the EU, NATO and the USA is now pervading the feelings of Libyans and their supporters, who are left with a sense of helpless outrage as the freedom movement appears to flounder in the region.
Reports that Israel is supplying Gadaffi with ammunition and weapons have also come in. The resistance fighters reported to have captured a Greek ship full of supplies from Israel heading to Gadaffi.
The tweets also claim that resistance have pushed forces loyal to Gadaffi back to Brega and further, despite mainstream news following state tv claims otherwise. Gadaffi made a uncharacteristically brief speech which was aired on big screen tv in Benghazi and people threw shoes at his image throughout.
More tweets refer to Libyan resistance now having air power, and suggest the resistance has possibly captured Libyan army planes.
None of these reports can be confirmed at this point - some are included below for your perusal.
