Libya – who commits violence against civilians now?

One query on recent developments in Libya….

In last few days, Libyan crisis has done a u-turn. Cease-fire meetings targeted to avoid bloodshed in Bani Walid – area of pro-Gaddafi supporters – failed few days ago. Bani Walid is now under attack from ground and air by anti-Gaddafi National Transitional Council (NTC) and NATO.

NATO role in Libyan conflict is to honour UN Security Council resolution 1973 directive.  The resolution demands “immediate establishment of a ceasefire and a complete end to violence and all attacks against, and abuses of, civilians”; the resolution never agreed to attack villages.

I am not a Gaddafi supporter; as said earlier, nor I support his mistakes and atrocities over past few decades.  But, in current scenario, who is committing violence against civilians in Libya?  Is it the almost failed, re-treating army of Gaddafi or the NATO/NTC combination?

What UN Security Council has to say on this?
