WASHINGTON: US and British forces have fired at least 110 Tomahawk cruise missiles into Libya against Moamer Kadhafi’s air defense sites, a top US military officer said Saturday.

A US warship fired Tomahawk cruise missiles into Libya on Saturday, targeting Moamer Kadhafi’s air defense sites, a senior US military official said.

The US engaged with “command and control logistics (and) cruise missiles” in its first strikes near Libya’s coast, “because that’s where the integrated missile defense systems are and of course te other air defense related facilities,” notably around Tripoli and Misrata, the official said.

The US operation — named “Odyssey Dawn” — followed initial missions by French warplanes, which carried out four air strikes Saturday, destroying several armoured vehicles of Kadhafi forces.

U.S. military officials have confirmed the first American tomahawk cruise missiles have been fired at targets inside Libya from ships in the Mediterranean Sea.

The move is the first direct U.S. involvement in the international operation mobilizing to stop Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi’s attacks on opposition strongholds and enforce a U.N.-backed no-fly zone.

Pentagon officials said there were 11 U.S. ships stationed in the Mediterranean Sea, including three submarines and two destroyers capable of firing cruise missiles, and several amphibious ships and supply ships.

The first strikes in what is being called “Operation Odyssey Dawn” were expected to target air defense missile sites around Tripoli, Misratah, and Surt, but no areas east of that or near Benghazi, officials said.
