Gadhafi Forces Continue Attacks on Civilians

Wednesday, 23 Mar 2011 12:38 PM

 

WASHINGTON  - Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi's military remains in violation of a U.N. Security Council resolution calling for an end to attacks on civilians, with fighting reported in several cities, U.S. Rear Admiral Gerard Hueber said Wednesday.

Hueber told reporters the international coalition enforcing a U.N.-backed no-fly zone over Libya was putting pressure on Gadhafi's forces. He said the coalition had flown 175 sorties in the last 24 hours, with the U.S. flying 113 and other countries doing the remainder.

Coalition forces were targeting Libyan mechanized forces, artillery and mobile missile sites, he said.
