Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's former right-hand man Abdel Salam Jalloud has warned that the strongman is not likely to give up easily and will not commit suicide in his bunker as Adolf Hitler did.

Jalloud, who has defected to Italy, said he believed it impossible that Gaddafi would surrender, adding that the Libyan dictator did not have the courage to commit suicide but could ask one of his aides to shoot him to avoid being caught by the rebels.

Gaddafi's former closest aide and a former Libyan Prime Minister explained that it was too late for the tyrant to negotiate a deal with advancing rebels and that he would probably end up dead.

In his words, the tyrant had no chance of fleeing Tripoli without an international agreement, which was out of the question.

Jalloud also declared that the current developments had been expected for months after Gaddafi's major combat forces, which had been dispatched to the rebel stronghold of Benghazi, were destroyed by NATO jets in June.

Gaddafi's ex ally further noted that the regime would be toppled in 10 days or less.
