ibya’s rebel leadership called on the international community on Wednesday to impose a no-fly zone to ground Muammar Gaddafi‘s warplanes and end further bloodshed.

Here are some quotes from rebels:

 

* IMAN BUGAIGIS, FEB 17 COALITION, MEDIA OFFICER

“We are concentrating our diplomatic efforts and working hard. But as always, they (foreign powers) are reluctant. One day we think they will take action soon …

“This is why there are diplomatic efforts going on, and on the ground also. But we know the forces are unequal. This is why we want at least the no-fly zone but it is taking all this time. It is incredible. Hundreds are dying every day and they don’t want to take any action.”

* SALEH ZEYDAN, MECHANICAL ENGINEER

“I agree with a no-fly zone. It’s ideal. It’s not foreign intervention. It’s protecting our country and our people.”

* NAJI SALEH, VOLUNTEER, NEAR RAS LANUF

“They had a no-fly zone in Iraq. Why is Gaddafi their darling and and Saddam Hussein was not?”

* HAFIZ GHOGA, REBEL COUNCIL SPOKESMAN IN BENGHAZI

“We already prevailed and we will complete our victory when we are afforded a no-fly zone. If there was also action to stop him (Gaddafi) from recruiting mercenaries, his end would come within hours.”
