Defence Secretary, Dr Liam Fox said: "British Tornado GR4 Aircraft, on armed reconnaissance missions over Libya, last night (24/03/11) took part in a co-ordinated missile strike against units of Colonel Gaddaffi's Libyan Military in support of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973.
"The Tornado aircraft launched a number of guided Brimstone missiles at Libyan armoured vehicles which were threatening the civilian population of Ajdabiya. Brimstone is a high precision, low collateral damage weapon optimised against demanding and mobile targets.
"Britain and her International partners remain engaged in Operations to support United Nations Security Resolution 1973, to enforce the established No Fly Zone and to ready the UK’s contribution to the NATO arms embargo of Libya."
