NATO Massacre at Majer requires International Law Suits

Family members, eyewitnesses and Libyan government officials claim  that NATO’s airstrikes at Majer killed 85 people: 33 children, 32 women, and 20 men. Reporters and visitors were shown 30 of the bodies in a  local morgue, including a mother and two children. Officials and  residents explained that approximately 50 bodies were taken to other  locations for family burial and most of the injured were rushed to  hospitals at Tripoli.

At Majer, NATO chose to bomb three neighboring compounds and visitors examined a total of five bombed-out houses. There was no evidence of  weapons at the farmhouses, but rather mattresses, clothes and books  littered the area. One badly injured 15-year old young lady, Salwa Ageil Al Jaoud, had earlier written her name inside one notebook found amidst the rubble. She was later visited in hospital and attested, like the  witnesses at Qana had, that there was no military presence in the homes  that were bombed.

NATO used the same tactic that Israel used during the two Qana  massacres. After the first three bombs dropped at around 11:00 pm (2100  GMT) on Monday, August 8, many residents of the area ran to the bombed  houses to try to save their loved ones. NATO then instantly struck with  more bombs, slaughtering 85 Libyans.
