From Grad rockets to heavy machine guns, troops loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi unleashed a massive assault on Misurata, the country's third-largest city and the most significant rebel holdout in the west.

Inside a ripped-apart vegetable market, Gaddafi's tanks sit destroyed, not by NATO warplanes, which had difficulty striking targets in the urban environment, but by dedicated rebels wielding rocket-propelled grenades and homemade explosives.

Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley, reporting from the city, explores the devastated remainders of Misurata.
