An Airstrike by NATO has led to the death of the son of Libyan Leader Muammar Gaddafi in the Libyan capital of Tripoli.
A Spokesman for the Libyan Government told the press that Colonel Gaddafi himself was in the residential villa which was hit by the strike, adding that he was unharmed. His son Saif al-Arab was killed, as well as three of his grandsons.
Those who have seen the damage have said that the villa was damaged extensively and severely. An unexploded bomb also remains at the site. Speaking on behalf of the Government, Moussa Ibrahim has said the villa was attacked “with full power.”
“The attack resulted in the martyrdom of brother Saif al-Arab Gaddafi, 29 years old, and three of the leader’s grandchildren,” he said adding:
“The leader with his wife was there in the house with other friends and relatives, the leader himself is in good health, he wasn’t harmed.”. “This was a direct operation to assassinate the leader of this country,”.
