For the first time in its history Nato has been forced to face trial for civilian killings.
Khaled al-Hamedi initiated the law suit against NATO for the death of 13 civilians who died in the infamous June 20th, 2011 Sorman Massacre.
Khaled al-Hamedi is convinced that NATO intentionally targeted his home because his father, General Kweldi, was a respected elder, long time member of Libya’s Revolutionary Council of twelve and one of Muammar Gaddafi’s closest confidantes.
Danish Defense Minister Nick Haekkerup, certain that every target the Danish airforce attacked were military targets, claims he welcomes the law suit.
This is a precedent-setting case. The ramifications for both Denmark and NATO will be significant.
