Seif Al-arab Gadhafi, A NATO airstrike on a house killed Saif al-Arab, Gaddafi, Libyan leader’s youngest son, a Libyan government spokesman has claimed.
Gaddafi and his wife say he was in the building at the time Saturday night, but were unharmed. Three of his grandchildren were killed and wounded friends and relatives, said spokesman Ibrahim Moussa.
“The attack resulted in the martyrdom of brother Saif al-Arab, Gaddafi, aged 29, and three of the grandchildren of the leader. “The leader himself was not hurt. He is in good health,” he said. “This was a straightforward operation to assassinate the leader of this country.”
The strong explosion was heard shortly after 20:00 local time at the hotel where international journalists are forced to remain under the restrictions of the Libyan government.
A column of smoke was seen rising west of the Rixos Hotel. At this stage, there was no word on the target.
Three hours later, journalists were rounded up and driven 2 km from the walled complex of buildings in an apartment in a suburb of Tripoli.
One of the buildings in the complex had been completely destroyed. A huge crater was surrounded by broken concrete and twisted metal.
An adjacent building was partially destroyed, but a quarter remained intact.
On the floor next to the large crater was a large unexploded missile. Locals dusted her in an unsuccessful attempt to identify its origin.
Interestingly, government officials refused to disclose at this time that was the house that had been in or had been killed.
Emergency services could be seen leaving the scene as journalists arrived. There was no sign of eyewitnesses to the interview.
An hour later, back at the hotel, a conference was called. In Arabic, Gaddafi’s spokesman Ibrahim Moussa, announced that Saif al-Arab, Qaddafi had been killed.
Among those gathered were from the Libyan government to hear the news first. There were angry cries of “Allahu Aqbar!” – “God is great!”
As the news of the attack spread across the Libyan capital, the sound of heavy gunfire and car horns could be heard.
Today there were reports that several foreign embassies and residences have been damaged, including the British ambassador.
Gaddafi’s regime claims that there has been an attempt to assassinate the Libyan leader, but there is no way to independently verify the reports that he was there, or even your child has been murdered.
NATO said it later became a “command and control of buildings in the neighborhood of Bab al Azizy” on Saturday night.
Following the clams that the building was attacked in a residential area, the Foreign Minister Alistair Burt said it was “naive” to think that the command and control centers will be identified as such by the Libyan military.
He told the program Murnaghan Sky News: “They are not military targets, but individuals are not specifically targeted, which has always been the case and that remains the case.”
The alliance commander Lt. Gen. Charles Bouchard said he was aware of “unconfirmed press reports” that the Gaddafi family members may have died and said any loss of life is regrettable.
British Prime Minister, David Cameron, said NATO’s policy in Libya is not on the direction of “certain people.”
