NATO Pounds Qadhafi Regime Command and Control Centres


BELGIUM–(ENEWSPF)–19 April 2011.  NATO conducted deliberate, multiple strikes against command and control facilities of the Qadhafi regime last night, including communications infrastructure used to coordinate attacks against civilians, and the headquarters of the 32nd Brigade located 10 km south of Tripoli.

The 32nd Brigade headquarters has been used to lead and coordinate military actions against the Libyan civilian population.

“NATO will continue its campaign to degrade the Qadhafi regime forces that are involved in the ongoing attacks on civilians.  We do so in accordance with the United Nations Security Council Mandate 1973 in order to protect, by any means, the civilian population from attack,” said Lieutenant-General Charles Bouchard, the Commander of Operation Unified Protector.
