Defence Secretary Liam Fox has said Britain will continue with the Libyan bombing campaign for as long as is necessary.
Mr Fox said Britain had a commitment to continue with airstrikes on Libya to fulfil a UN resolution aimed at protecting civilians.
"There's only one message we should be sending to the regime and that is that we have both the military capability and the resolve to continue pursuing and fulfilling United Nations resolution 1973 as long as is required," he said on BBC radio.
Britain has been bombing Libyan military and government targets since March, when Nato intervened and started attacking Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's forces as he fought a revolt against his 41-year rule.
The Government announcement comes as Libyan rebels claim they have moved one step closer to claiming the town of Misratah.
After a week of battles for control of the area, rebel forces now say they have pushed towards Zlitan which is 50 miles (80km) from Misratah.
Hospital officials said 12 rebels were killed and 60 injured in the fighting.
