Warning: graphic

NATO writes in their report that they attacked on Sep 16 in Sirte: 5 command & control nodes, 3 radars, 4 armed vehicles and 8 air missile systems.

It's not the first time that NATO attacked civilian buildings to later explain that the buildings had been re-purposed militarily.

On Sep 2 already, Reuters reported that electricity and water in the pro-Gaddafi town of Bani Walid had been cut off by NATO rebels. Also, most pro-Gaddafi fighters in Bani Walid were reported to be civilian volunteers.

A Sep 16 teleSUR report explains how the NATO rebel siege and blockade of Bani Walid and Sirte have resulted in critical humanitarian situations.

Sadly, hardly any of this information makes it into our mainstream media. See also:
