Latest Breaking News: Britain’s air forces strikes at Libya > According to source, David Cameron announce that the four more Tornado Fighters bombers were being used in Libya Fight.
It is understood the Tornados, from RAF Marham in Norfolk, will help fill gaps left by US forces, which are reducing their operations in Libya.
William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, also told MPs that Britain would supply the rebels with equipment, including communications kit.
Officials said it would “primarily” allow rebel commanders to contact the front line, but could also be used to call in coalition air strikes. Mr Hague said: “We are not engaged in arming the opposition forces.”
The extra Tornados, which increase Britain’s ground-attack capability by 50 per cent, have been deployed despite repeated claims that Col Gaddafi’s forces have been weakened. Even after almost three weeks of Western attacks, pro-Gaddafi forces have still prevented rebels from advancing on Tripoli.
