A “large number” of civilians was reported killed in NATO airstrikes on Sirte, according to the Gaddafi regime.
Mohamed Abd El Rahman reported on Facebook that “the Libyan regime said that the coalition launched raids on Tripoli and Zuwara and Misurata (west) and Sirte since Saturday and targeted Sirte on Monday, especially the airports, which led to the death of ‘a large number of civilians’.”
Another source only mentioned British airstrikes on Sirte, but made no mention of civilian harm.
According to independent monitors, numbers of civilian casualties reported by the Gaddafi regime were significantly inflated throughout the NATO intervention.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
