  • U.S. Tomahawk missiles land around Tripoli and Misrata, official says
  • Gadhafi has failed to comply with cease-fire
  • "The U.S. will be at the front end" of a multiphase approach, official says
(CNN) -- The U.S. military launched its first airstrikes on Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's air defenses, a senior military official said Saturday.
U.S. Tomahawk missiles landed in the area around Tripoli and Misrata, the official said, adding that the action was taken after Gadhafi failed to comply with a cease-fire.
"He's clearly been on the offensive," the official said of Gadhafi. "He said that he was going to do a cease-fire and he continued to move his forces into Benghazi."
The attacks on Gadhafi's forces will be part of a multiphase approach in a sequential and deliberate manner, according to the official.
"The U.S. will be at the front end of this, providing the unique capabilities that the U.S. has," the official said.
