Now reports have confirmed the first phase of presence of foreign troops in Libya in the name of 'military advisers.'
First, British military experts are on their way to the city of Benghazi to help rebel forces. Britain says the officers will not be involved in fighting, but the move raises the question of whether the international mission in Libya is expanding.
And now, France and Italy on April 20 promised more support for Libya's opposition, saying they would join Britain in sending military advisers to help the rebels break a battlefield stalemate.
The question is, whether this would lead to escalation of fight in Libya or whether this would lead to some settlement, breaking the current stalemate?
