PRESS TV: West Lacks Political Target in Libya

Though NATO air strikes on Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi's compound have killedhis son and grandchildren, as battles between the revolutionaries and the army continue in the African country, in an interview viewed with Press TV, Hirsham Jaber, director of the Middle East Center for Studies and Public Relations from Beirut, commented on the current situation in Libya: The following is a transcript of his interview: "NATO says it targets Gaddafi's command centers and not specifically Gaddafi himself. However, Gaddafi's son and grandchildren were killed in a recent NATO air strike on his compound. Would you presume that that NATO's strikes are specified to kill Gaddafi? Though we are not certain that we have complete information that Gaddafi was in the building that they bombed, Bab al-Aziza was NOT a military target. Some of them, like Italy and Germany have said that Gaddafi or even his regime is NOT their business! They said that they are in Libya according to UN resolution 1973, that protects civilians, though they have not been able to protect the civilians for two months. The estimated number of killed civilians is around twelve to fifteen thousand!
