The Khamis Brigade is a special forces brigade of the military of Libya which is loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, the leader of leader of Libya since 1969.

The Libyan government on Friday denied rebel reports that Moammar Gadhafi's youngest son was killed in a NATO airstrike on a front-line town in western Libya.
With NATO's attention mostly focused on Tripoli, troops led by two sons of Moammar Gadhafi have flanked Misrata in a pincer move aimed at retaking the key rebel-held city in Libya's west.
Col. Moammar Gadhafi's forces bombarded two key rebel-held cities on Monday, witnesses said, as they attempted to seize back the country's east by the air even as rebels said they kept control of the streets in the region that holds most of the country's oil wealth.
Moammar Gadhafi's regime struck back at its opponents Friday, launching a powerful attack on the closest opposition-held city to Tripoli and firing tear gas and live ammunition to smother new protests in the capital. At least 37 people died in fighting and in an explosion at an ammunitions depot in Libya's rebellious east.
