Russian military: Airstrikes in Libya did not take place

RussiaToday | Mar 1, 2011

The reports of Libya mobilizing its air force against its own people spread quickly around the world. However, Russia’s military chiefs say they have been monitoring from space — and the pictures tell a different story. According to Al Jazeera and BBC, on February 22 Libyan government inflicted airstrikes on Benghazi — the country’s largest city — and on the capital Tripoli. However, the Russian military, monitoring the unrest via satellite from the very beginning, says nothing of the sort was going on on the ground. At this point, the Russian military is saying that, as far as they are concerned, the attacks some media were reporting have never occurred. The same sources in Russia’s military establishment say they are also monitoring the situation around Libya’s oil pumping facilities.

  6. I just googled airstrikes, Libya, 2011 on images and there wasn’t anything that showed photos of airstrikes. Lately, I’ve been wondering about Al Jazeera. Is it really an independent newspaper anymore? Has the ownership changed recently?Isn’t it just becoming more mainstream, especially with negotiating with Comcast for outlets in the U.S.? Is it providing an alternative to mass media in the U.S. OR do the people pulling the strings behind the scenes just want to make us think that, so they have even more complete control over forming people’s opinions on what’s happening in the world? … just wondering, especially in light of the questions the Russians have raised about the validity of some of their coverage in Libya.

  7. I guess it could be true….but Russia (as well as US, China, UK EU) all have a stake in Libya’s oil….so how can we know the truth?
