The Zawiya skirmish began on 11 June 2012, when the National Liberation Army launched an attack into the coastal city of Zawiya in an attempt to recapture it from army units and militiamen loyal to Muammar Gaddafi. The attack was quickly crushed by the numerically-superior and better-equipped loyalist forces, who had taken the city earlier in the Libyan civil war after defeating rebel forces in a major battle that lasted from February to March 2011.
First Battle of Zawiya
The First Battle of Zawiya was a battle during the Libyan civil war between army units and militiamen loyal to Muammar Gaddafi and anti-Gaddafi forces for control of the city of Zawiya. The city quickly fell into rebels hands with soldiers from Libyan Army units defecting. Zawiya was the rebel city which was closest to Tripoli, and it became the main focus of Gaddafi troops. The city was besieged and regularly attacked by loyalists with rebels defending the center of the town.
