Tripoli, Libya (CNN) -- Libyan government forces fired a missile at an Italian warship in the Mediterranean Sea on Wednesday in a rare attack on the NATO fleet offshore, a government spokesman said.

The frigate Bersagliere was about 19 kilometers (12 miles) off the Libyan city of Zlitan when the missile fell harmlessly into the sea about 2 km away, the Italian defense ministry and NATO reported.

Oh man it looks like though warships are patrolling the Libya water and though it did miss a NATO warship. How many warships are out there patrolling the libyan coast right now. Even now Libyan rebels are now confuse and don't know what to do. I advice that put in ground troops or just pull out of Libya now. THere is not clear exist stragedty for Libya and the NATO is going to get bankrupt even more.

Well, hell. Once a NATO warship is hit...then NATO can put "Boots on the ground", can't they?

I am not a fan of QuaDaffy Duck, but why the US is backing this one leaves me speechless.

US handed over control to our NATO(European) back in April of 2011. So US only provides refuelling.

We are also providing roughly 75% of the weaponry. We may not be firing it, but we are providing it.

Ya that's a Canadian commander who right now overseas the operation of the Libyan force. As for now, it's funny that the Libyan government speaks his army is the best LOL.

How dare the Libyans do this!!!

They need more peace and humanitarian aid in the form of BOMBS, then let's roll in ground troops and increase military spending 10 fold there!

So NATO is dropping bombs all over their country as part of a "humanitarian mission" and they are shocked that someone fired a missile at one the ships off the coast?

In my opinion this is called defending yourself. I realize I am a "domestic terrorist "and an "extremist" but if you do not want people shooting missiles at you, maybe you should not drop bombs on them? If I am in someone's yard and they throw rocks at me, I can easily stop them by doing so by leaving their yard.

I don't like Gaddafi but i agree with you. Since Libya was attacked by NATO warplanes, you have every right to defend themselves. I'm not sure how do the Libyan government tried to get all their weapons from since the fact Libya is already surrouneded by NATO as well as the military supplies/targets being bombed piece by piece by piece until every of it is gone. How do the Libyan government tried to get all the weapons for their troops?
