The fighting between Brega and Ajdabiyah, where the strike occurred, has been fierce for several days. The situation is unclear and fluid with mechanized weapons traveling in all directions.
What remains clear is that NATO will continue to uphold the UN mandate and strike forces that can potentially cause harm to the civilian population of Libya.
