Libya: NATO Bombing Campaign in High Gear: More than 6000 Sorties

NATO headquarters has confirmed that since 31 March 2011, a total of more than 6000 sorties have been conducted, including 2414 strike sorties. What we are witnessing is the systematic bombardment of a sovereign country.  

NATO insists that “they have made no attempt to strike individual leaders of the Libyan government, but have only targeted its capacity to harm civilians.” The fact of the matter is that NATO bombings have resulted in countless civilian deaths.

“A statement from the Western alliance said NATO-led aircraft carried out 46 strike sorties on Wednesday, including raids which took out four ammunition caches, four command and control facilities and two surface-to-air missile launchers in and around Tripoli, and one launcher near Misrata.”
