Report Hits NATO on Lack of Information Related to Killings
The United Nations Human Rights Council today released the report of its inquiry on the Libyan Civil War, concluding that NATO had killed 60 civilians over the course of the war and wounded 55 others.
This is a dramatic increase over the estimates of NATO, which insisted it had not killed or wounded even a single civilian and insisted that every attack was against a “legitimate military target.”
Though the report did say that NATO had conducted a mostly “precise” campaign, it seriously faulted the alliance for its refusal to provide information on the attacks that killed civilians, and particularly those which did not appear to have any conceivable military nature.
The report also noted serious human rights violations by members of the anti-Gadhafi factions, saying they participated in the same sorts of war crimes the Gadhafi regime has been.
