Naples, Italy – NATO is looking into reports of civilian casualties following NATO air strikes in the early hours of June 19th.

The incident is said to have occurred in a residential area in northern Tripoli following a deliberate strike which targeted a missile site operated by pro-Qadhafi forces. NATO regrets any loss of civilian lives and is doing all it can to protect the people of Libya from the violence waged by the Qadhafi regime.
This campaign has conducted over 4,400 strike sorties. Every mission is planned and executed with precision and care with a high record of accuracy. We take all reports of civilian casualties very seriously and we will continue to look into the facts related to this event. NATO would be sorry if the review of this incident did indicate that it was caused by a NATO weapon.

NATO acknowledges civilian casualties in Tripoli strike

Naples – NATO says that a military missile site was the intended target of air strikes in Tripoli last night.    However, it appears that one weapon did not strike the intended target and that there may have been a weapons system failure which may have caused a number of civilian casualties.

“NATO regrets the loss of innocent civilian lives and takes great care in conducting strikes against a regime determined to use violence against its own citizens,” said Lieutenant-General Charles Bouchard, Commander of Operation Unified Protector. “Although we are still determining the specifics of this event, indications are that a weapons system failure may have caused this incident,” he added.

This campaign has conducted over 11,500 sorties and every mission is planned and executed with tremendous care to avoid civilian casualties. NATO remains fully committed to this operation.

NATO’s operation UNIFIED PROTECTOR is being conducted under United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973. This mandate authorizes NATO to use all necessary measures to protect the civilian population of Libya. The Qadhafi regime could stop all this fighting by complying with the international community’s demands.
