Tripoli: Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and his wife survived a NATO air strike that killed his youngest son Saif al-Arab Gaddafi and three grandchildren.
Hours after NATO rejected Gaddafi's offer for a ceasefire and negotiations, Libyan government spokesman Moussa Ibrahim said on Sunday that the house of Saif al-Arab, one of the Libyan dictator's seven sons, was attacked on Saturday night with full power.
"This was a direct operation to assassinate the leader of this country. This is not permitted by international law. It is not permitted by any moral code or principle. What we have now is the law of the jungle," Ibrahim said.
68-year-old Gaddafi and his wife were present in the house with other friends and relatives, Ibrahim said. "The leader is in good health, and wasn't harmed."
Ibrahim claimed that the attack resulted in the martyrdom of brother Saif al-Arab Muammar Gaddafi, 29 years old, and three of the leader's grandchildren."
Acknowledging that it had carried out the air strike, NATO, however, did not deny or confirm the reported deaths. A NATO spokesman said the strike had hit a known command and control building in the Bab al-Azizya neighbourhood.
All NATO's targets are military in nature and have been clearly linked to the... regime's systematic attacks on the Libyan population and populated areas. We do not target individuals," said Lt Gen Charles Bouchard, commander of NATO's Operation Unified Protector.
Ibrahim did not give the names of children for privacy reasons but said they were nieces and nephews of Saif al-Arab and were younger than 12.
Mastora Hamid Bortaiya - daughter of Aisha Gaddafi 4 months old. Sief Mohamed Gaddafi - son of Mohamed Gaddafi. Gartag Hanibal Gaddafi - daughter of Hanibal Gaddafi 3 years old.
I feel safer knowing his grandchildren are dead.
And for those that support the killing of youngsters—it’s very Christian of you.
Now...find Osama..and kill HIM! It’s been ten years!
Also not permitted by US law.
But John McCain was advocating just that a couple of weeks ago.
Saif Mohammed Muammar Gaddafi was one year and 3 months (born on 30 January 2010) , Carthage Hannibal Muammar Gaddafi was 2 years and 9 months old (born on 2 August 2008) and Mastura Humaid (daughter of Aisha) was 4 months and half (she was born on 15 December 2010).
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth-—PAN AMERICAN FLIGHT 103. LA BELLE DISCOTEQUE BERLIN. THE VIENNA AND ROME AIRPORT MASSACRES. OPERATION EL DORADO CANYON AND AIR FORCE CAPTAINS Fernando L. Ribas-Dominicci and Paul F. Lorence!
I understand your sentiments about Flight 103, but that’s not why we’re there.
You mean McNutz? Obama's playpal?
Basically, Soros and Obunga are trying to perpetrate a bank robbery in broad daylight and using American military assets to do it.
I guess that we’ll take him apart like we did with Saddam, years ago. A piece at a time till we have him swinging from a rope.
Its pretty obvious why were there-—big oil! Do you really think Obama cares about Pan Am flight 103 or Captains Lorence and Ribas-Dominicci deaths in Operartion El Dorado Canyon?
If we were to unleash 40 days and 40 nights of bombing of Libya, then I would cheer!
Then what? How long will we have to be in Libya after Gadhafi is gone?
I would cheer if we took out both Gadhafi and the rebels.
Naming someone “Carthage Hannibal” is sacrilege...while leaving out the “Barca.”
Got to josh. The death of children is tragic.
An eye for an eye...the killing of toddlers (the oldest was two years old)...my daddy’s Baptist pastor spoke about this this morning in saddened terms. He’s a true Christian, as far as I can see.
Just one of the kinetic consequences of Barack Hussein Obama’s use of the U.S. military as an Al Qaeda air asset.
This account has been settled long time ago. Now it's Daffy's turn to dislodge somobody's tooth and pluck somebody's eye.
It is not fool who can not read, but one who believes anything he reads.
You obviously never dug deeper than headlines.
