Tripoli, Libya (CNN) — As fighting continued in the Libyan cities of Ajdabiya and Misrata Sunday, a rebel spokesman questioned the commitment of NATO’s mission there.
Forces loyal to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi were bombing Ajdabiya from 40-50 kilometers (25-31 miles) away, Libyan rebel spokesman Shamsiddin Abdulmolah told CNN. The loyalists who were bombing the city “have no problem with the weather conditions there,” referring to unconfirmed reports that NATO airstrikes were halted in the area due to weather conditions.
Gadhafi’s forces are using Grad missiles and mortars, “and sometimes we feel that NATO wants to use any excuse out there so they don’t carry out their duties,” he said.
