Royal Air Force Tornado and Typhoon aircraft were tasked with destroying pro-Qadhafi regime ammunition stocks located near Gariyat in Western Libya. The airstrike followed other NATO attacks on other pro-regime storage areas.

Using Paveway IV and Enhanced Paveway II precision-guided munitions, bunkers at the facility containing munitions were struck.

A large explosion in one of the strikes' videos can be seen, suggesting that a substantial quantity of munitions was being inside the destroyed bunker.
