A map showing major early events of the coalition intervention in Libya. The no-fly zone over Libya is featured along with military bases and warships which are involved in the military intervention (airstrikes, and enforcing the no-flyzone and naval blockade).

Since the beginning of the international intervention, the initial coalition of Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Italy, Norway, Qatar, Spain, UK and US has expanded to now include a total of 19 states. The attacks against Gaddafi's forces were initially largely led by France and the United Kingdom, with command shared with the United States.

NATO took control of the arms embargo on the 23rd of March 2011 (Operation Unified Protector), and the following day it also took command of targeting pro-Gaddafi ground units from the air, sea and land. The official NATO handover took place on the 31st of March at 0600 GMT.

Previously, airstrikes and blockades were organised on a national basis:
Operation Odyssey Dawn and/or Operation Freedom Falcon (Belgium)
Operation Mobile (Canada)
Opération Harmattan (France)
Operation Ellamy (UK)
Operación Odisea al Amanecer (Spain)
Operation Odyssey Dawn (US, Italy, Denmark, Norway)

Full list of participating NATO member nations: Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Denmark, France, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States

Non-NATO coalition members: Jordan, Qatar, Sweden, United Arab Emirates
