Sure there are some Libyans. But, there are also special forces troops, CIA operatives and quite likely some mercenaries supplied by NATO thrown into the mix.
Hardly all Libyans and hardly all rebels.
If you have any doubt about the special forces, recall-

Russia is not recognizing the so called Libyan, so called rebels as the legitimate government.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday that his country refused to recognize the rebel National Transitional Council (NTC) as Libya's legitimate government
The Russian foreign minister stressed that the Contact Group's Istanbul declaration has taken one party's side in the Libyan civil war. He accused the 30-member Contact Group of attempting to isolate official Tripoli.
"Russia traditionally rejects isolation as a way to resolve any problem in any conflict," Lavrov noted.
He reminded that Moscow has been in contact with both Tripoli and Benghazi, urging them to take constructive position and responsibility for their nation.
Do expect the war to heat up as the oil is not flowing. The sweet light crude that NATO needs to rule the world-
The author is a complete tool for NATO. One sided demonization of Ghadaffi, aside, it is clear from this piece, as clear as it has been from the get go- the agenda is oil control.
"The significance of the Libyan absence from markets is in the unique light, sweet quality of the crude, which cannot be easily replaced."
Following speculation on Friday that the Contact Group’s recognition, American in particular, would allow exports to restart, Agoco representative Abdeljalil Mayouf reminded the world,
“We are not producing. Everything is under repair. I can’t tell you a date to restart.” Agoco is Arabian Gulf Oil Company, currently under TNC-control, headquartered in Benghazi.
The Contact Group’s formal recognition also sparked speculation that frozen assets would be released to the TNC, giving the opposition a much-needed fiscal boost.
It would make sense that the news last week of the sudden recognition of the 'rebels' as the legitimate government of Libya, by the NATO war machine, along side the promise to provide billions in funding is for the reconstruction of oil infrastructure.
NATO has killed thousands of Libyan civilians to control oil that was already flowing. SICK.
