Khamis Gadhafi is reported to have been killed Saturday — but possibly as early as Tuesday, March 15 — by a traitor (hero/martyr) Libyan air force pilot who nose-dived his fighter jet into the Gaddafi’s Bab al-Aziziya compound. The pilot was reported to have been dispatched to a bombing run in the eastern part of Libya where rebels are fighting. Instead the pilot turned around and deliberately crashed his jet into the Gaddafi family compound.
Khamis Gadhafi is also rumored to have been injured in a battle in Ajdabiya. He is the Muammar Gaddafi’s seventh and youngest son. Khamis was 3 years old when an American retaliation airstrike ordered by President Ronald Reagan hit Bab al-Aziziya compound in 1986, in response to the bombing of a Berlin disco. The disco bombing was blamed on Libyan agents, that killed three American soldiers and wounded more than 230 people. Khamis suffered head injuries in the 1986 U.S. air strike, and his adopted sister was reported to have been killed.
Ajdabiya, previously known as Agedabia or Ajdabya, is the capital of Al Wahat District in northeastern Libya just over six miles from the Mediterranean Sea. Ajdabiya came under control of the Libyan opposition in the 2011 rebel uprising. The battle of Ajdabiya is being fought between rebels and pro-Gaddafi forces in and near the town — about 160 kilometres (100 mi) south of Benghazi.
Ajdabiya is divided into three Basic People’s Congresses: North Ajdabiya, West Ajdabiya and East Ajdabiya.
