The air exclusion zone imposed in Libya will last for a period of 90 days, although this time could expand itself if the situation demands it. NATO officials stated that the mission, approved last Thursday, will involve the help of hundreds of planes from 28 countries members of the military Alliance.
This Friday the western planes attacked again the Libyan land forces in an important location in the east of the country. The operation began a week ago after the Security Council of the UN approved the resolution to strike at the Libyan leader, Muammar al Gaddafi.
Meanwhile the British Minister of Foreign Affairs, William Hague, assured that there are no proofs that the operation caused civilian casualties. The sole purpose of the mission is to protect the population of Libya, the only civilian victims are those killed by the regime forces.
