RAF Tornados destroy former regime vehicles in Libya

Ministry of Defence said:
During an armed reconnaissance patrol over Sebha in southern Libya yesterday morning, Royal Air Force Tornado GR4s located a number of former regime armoured vehicles occupying dug-in positions near the town.

Around 1,200 migrants, mostly Chadians, are stranded in the besieged southern Libyan town of Sebha, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) said Tuesday.

"Sebha is still in the hands of Qaddafi and is circled by rebels," according to IOM spokesperson Jean-Philippe Chauzy.

So, foreign nationals, who have fled from Loyalist strongholds, are encircled by rebels. We all know that the Rebels have targeted foreign nationals, decrying them as mercenaries. Why then, are British forces attacking those who are defending these foreign civilians from the belligerent forces of the Rebel army? If anything demonstrates the duplicity of our input into this affair, it is this.
I tend to agree with you JC and the only justification I can see in NATO continuing the attacks given the Rebel dominance, is to ensure that hostilities are brought to a rapid conclusion thereby removing any justification for targeting of individuals by either side.
