Nato air strike kills 12 rebels in Misrata
Thursday 28 April 2011
A Nato air strike has killed 12 rebels in the besieged Libyan city of Misrata, a doctor reported on Thursday.
Dr Hassan Malitan said that he was with the men minutes before two missiles slammed into the building where they had been holed up for days.
Dr Malitan said the gunmen had assured him that they had been in contact with Nato forces about their location, but stressed that he believed the attack was a mistake.
Nato began bombing Libyan troops around Misrata this week. Libyan forces have been pounding Misrata with artillery in a bid to wrest the port city from the Western-backed rebels.
Seven rebel fighters were killed on Wednesday night when their checkpoint was hit by shells and rockets.
US President Barack Obama approved $25 million (£15m) worth of “non-military” aid for the rebels on Tuesday, including body armour, uniforms, medical supplies, boots and radios.

Warmongers’ playbook: 1) Leader X must go 2) need No-fly Zone 3) can’t have stalemate 4) invade! 5) permanent base$$ 6) cut SS/Medicare.

John Feffer, Foreign Policy in Focus: “The United States has shaped its policy toward the evolving situation in the Middle East according to the Chinese proverb of “killing the chicken to scare the monkey.” The Obama administration has intervened in the conflict in Libya with the apparent goal of punishing Gaddafi for cracking down on the emerging protest movement back in February. This intervention was designed to send a message to other autocrats in the region: don’t fire on your unarmed opposition – or else. But the United States and its allies are having problems with the ‘or else’ part of the equation”: here.
