NATO Hits Tripoli Military Depot

NATO says its forces hit a military store, three radar sites, and an antiaircraft missile launcher during air strikes east of Libya's capital early on July 17.
NATO fighters have been carrying out strikes against Libyan military targets as part of a UN-mandated operation to protect civilians from forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi.
The latest air strike came just hours after Qaddafi repeated he would never leave his country, in response to fresh international calls for him to step down amid a deepening campaign by rebels to overthrow him.
Rebel forces, however, have failed to make significant advances recently.
On July 16, at least 10 rebels were killed and more than 170 wounded in their latest advance on the strategic oil town of Brega.
