French destroying targets in Libya France has increased the number of sorties they fly over the country from an average of around 30 per week since the beginning of coalition action to 41 this week. Military vehicles and tanks were the main targets around the besieged city of Misurata while two ground-to-air missile launchers were also hit near the Gaddafi stronghold of Sirte according to defense ministry spokesman Thierry Burkhard. France has flown 255 sorties over Libya since the start of the coalition operation and President Nicolas Sarkozy told a visiting Libyan rebel leader in France this week that air strikes on Gaddafis army would intensify.
