Manifestanti pacifici esportati dal Quatar in Libia
Qatar revealed for the first time on Wednesday that hundreds of its soldiers
had joined Libyan rebel forces on the ground as they battled troops of
veteran leader Muammar Gaddafi.

"We were among them and the numbers of Qataris on the ground were hundreds
in every region," said Qatari chief of staff Major General Hamad bin Ali
Al-Atiya.

The announcement marks the first time that Qatar has acknowledged it had
military boots on the ground in Libya.

Previously the gas-rich country said it had only lent the support of its air
force to NATO-led operations to protect civilians during the eight-month
uprising, which ended when Gaddafi was captured and killed last week.
