There was no provision in UNSC Resolutions 1970 or 1973 that permitted the use of force against civilians or authorized war against Libya.
For the first time in history a body neither recognized nor appointed by the Libyan people, not Libyan, but foreign, took Libya’s rightful seat at the United Nations.
The group that comprised the NTC were affiliated with an officially designated terrorist organization.
Also unprecedented was the United Nations ignoring and even obstructing efforts at peaceful negotiations to end hostilities. The United Nations also denied Libya’s repeated requests for an official investigation into the events behind the destabilization efforts that began shorthy before February 17th, 2011.

In a final coup d’état, the United Nations granted immunity from prosecution to non-members of the ICC for war crimes committed in Libya.
Libya was not accorded this exception, even though it was not a signatory to the Rome Statute.
On May 1, NATO stated that they bombed an “ammunition storage facility” in Tripoli. (2 May 2011 )
Clearly, the personal residence of the Gaddafi family should not have been targeted, yet it was attacked with brutal and deadly precision.
Below is an article that states that Aisha Gaddafi launched a lawsuit against NATO.
The following press release refers to the submission of a request to the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court regarding NATO’s use of depleted uranium munitions and the murder of civilians.
The daughter of Muammar Gaddafi has launched a lawsuit for murder following the death in April of four members of her family during a Nato air strike.
Legal papers were submitted to the prosecutor’s office in Brussels on Tuesday by the French lawyer for Aisha Gaddafi.
During the bombing raid on 30 April the Libyan leader’s son Saif el-Arab, 29, as well as three of his grandchildren were killed. Ms Gaddafi’s four-month-old daughter Mastoura was one of those who died.
She argues the coalition forces that carried out the attack are guilty of “war crimes”, stating the air strike did not target a command and control post held by troops loyal to her father, but was a private residence in Tripoli where members of his family were living.
She has demanded investigators “discover, identify and punish those responsible for the murders and their accomplices”.
The papers were lodged by Luc Brossollet. His office confirmed that he had travelled to the Belgian capital to begin legal proceedings.
“The target was a civil building inhabited by civilians and was neither a command post nor a military control [centre] of the Libyan regime,” the legal papers state.
