NATO dismisses Gaddafi’s truce offer

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) operating in Libya has dismissed the country’s ruler Muammar Gaddafi’s proposal of a ceasefire.

Earlier, Gaddafi asked the NATO member states involved in Libya operations to start negotiations to stop the air attacks, saying he was ready to make oil contracts with Western countries if it was the real motive behind the strikes.

Despite Gaddafi’s offer of a truce, his forces continued shelling the besieged city of Misratah, aggravating the humanitarian situation for the residents of the city.

Libyan revolutionaries say Gaddafi tanks took positions on the airport road Thursday night and shelled homes in Misratah, trying to get into the city but were kept back.

Gaddafi regime has threatened to attack any ships trying to get aid to people. Libyan government has said the only possible humanitarian route is by road and under the supervision of the army.

British Brigadier Rob Weighill, director of NATO operations in Libya, says they intercepted several Libyan boats putting anti-shipping mines outside the harbor of Misratah to cut aid route to the city. NATO said they deposed three mines early Friday.

    We have all witnessed what form the west`s “humanitarian aid” takes. I wouldn`t want that kind of “aid” sailing into my port either. Heard today that Gaddafi`s youngest son and three grandchildren were killed in a Nato airstrike and that the “rebels” were dancing on the streets of Benghazi. What harm did those little kids do to the so-called rebels? I`m not even sure these rebels are Libyan..
