Major General Nick Pope, the Chief of the Defence Staff's Strategic Communications Officer, said:

"Air patrols over Libya by Royal Air Force Tornado and Typhoon ground attack aircraft continued yesterday under the auspices of NATO’s Operation Unified Protector, to protect Libyan civilians under threat of attack and enforce United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973.

"Our aircraft destroyed three ammunition bunkers at the depot in Waddan, and successfully engaged a military vehicle near Yafran in the Djebel Nafousa.

"At sea, Royal Navy ships maintained their patrols with other NATO vessels off the Libyan coast to enforce the United Nations arms embargo and protect from attack coastal communities such as Misratah."
