About this topic


The Libyan no-fly zone is a no-fly zone over Libya that was approved by the United Nations Security Council on March 17, 2011 by way of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1973. The no-fly zone was proposed during the 2011 Libyan uprising to prevent government forces loyal to Muammar Gaddafi from carrying out air attacks on rebel forces.

On 12 March, the Arab League called on the United Nations Security Council to impose the no-fly zone. On 17 March 2011, the Security Council voted 10-0 to approve the no-fly zone. There were five abstentions, including permanent members China and Russia who have veto power and had earlier expressed opposition to the proposal.
