Medic Fatih Danini at a makeshift field hospital in a mosque west of the city reported two dead and more than 20 wounded as a stream of ambulances bearing wounded fighters returned from the front line, an AFP reporter said.
Wounded National Transitional Council fighter Ali Mohammed Wada, hit in the arm by shrapnel, reported a major firefight inside Sirte with Kadhafi's forces, who were using rocket-propelled grenades and hand grenades.
"They tried to close the gates and we went deep inside the city," Wada told AFP.
