Cameron: No UK ground troops for Libyan war

first_img Show Comments ▼ Cameron: No UK ground troops for Libyan war LIBYAN rebels came under fire on the outskirts of Ajdabiyah yesterday, forcing them eastwards and denting hopes of an end to the war’s stalemate.One witness said he saw around a dozen rockets land near the western entrance to town, which rebels wanted to use as a staging post to retake the oil port of Brega. But although some rebels made it into the outskirts of Brega, 50 miles to the west, many others retreated to Ajdabiyah after six were killed by rockets fired by Gaddafi loyalists.Yesterday marked a month since the UN Security Council passed a resolution authorising force to protect civilians in Libya.The United States, France and Britain said last week they would not stop bombing Gaddafi’s forces until he left power. But despite NATO air strikes, rebels have been unable to hold gains in weeks of fighting.Prime Minister David Cameron said yesterday the constraints on deploying ground troops in Libya were making the campaign more difficult, but it was the right decision. He told Sky News: “What we’ve said is there is no question of invasion or an occupation – this is not about Britain putting boots on the ground.” by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMoneyPailShe Was An Actress, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search Ads KCS-content Sunday 17 April 2011 11:08 pmcenter_img whatsapp Tags: NULL whatsapp More From Our Partners A ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com Sharelast_img
