●5:15 a.m.: A new Libyan assault begins, this time with mortars. Two rounds miss and the next three hit the roof. The rooftop defenders never laser the mortars, as has been reported. They dont know the weapons are in place until the indirect fire begins, nor are the mortars observed by the drone overhead. The defenders have focused their laser sights earlier on several Libyan attackers, as warnings not to fire.
Scratching my head. I had to read this several times. So they did not laser the mortars, instead the attackers firing weapons? Am I reading this right? We are supposed to believe the laser was used only in hopes of making the attackers go away and not because they wanted the attacker obliterated?
