The United States and coalition military have been enforcing a no-fly zone effectively over Libya, and no Libyan plane took to the sky in the past 24 hours, Rear Adm. Gerard Hueber, chief of staff of Joint Task Force Odyssey Dawn, told a Pentagon briefing Wednesday via phone.

The coalition is targeting Libyan mechanized forces, artillery, mobile missile sites and communications capability, said Hueber, noting the coalition has communicated with Libyan government forces and rebel forces on ways to show compliance with the UN Security Council resolution to avoid being targeted by coalition air strikes.

Hueber said they "have no indication" that the Libyan government is complying with the UN resolution and it continues to advance against rebel-held cities.
