Libyan hospitals near the frontline are struggling to treat an ever-increasing number of patients.

Ibn Sina hospital in Sirte - a town that is now almost entirely in the hands of anti-Gaddafi fighters - has even become part of the battlebround as fighting continues between the two sides.

Wounded patients line the corridors and halls; on one side injured anti-Gadaffi fighters, and on the other, supporters of the former Libyan leader.

Fighters who faced each other in combat just hours before, are now being treated in the same barely-functioning medical facility.
