Libya Closes Airspace After Passage of UN Resolution

This blog post was updated on October 16, 2018.

Muammar Gaddafi’s regime has officially closed Libyan airspace to international traffic following threats of a no fly zone from United Nations members.


The passage of a new UN resolution authorizes the international body to take “all necessary measures” short of invasion to protect Libyan civilians.


The resolution was the first step towards establishing a no-fly zone over Libya and ending the violence against Gaddafi dissenters.


Great Britain, France, and the United States are now officially planning a no-fly zone to prevent Gaddafi from continuing air strikes on his people.
