Tripoli, Libya (CNN) — Libyan ruler Moammar Gadhafi called the allied nations bombing his country “terrorists” Sunday, a day after the United States, United Kingdom and France began to enforce a United Nations-mandated no-fly zone to protect Libya’s civilians from their leader.

There was violence across the country on Sunday, with Gadhafi apparently shelling rebels in the west while allied airstrikes destroyed one of Gadhafi’s convoys in the east, according to rebels.

Gadhafi said the strikes were a confrontation between the Libyan people and “the new Nazis,” and promised “a long-drawn war.”

“You have proven to the world that you are not civilized, that you are terrorists — animals attacking a safe nation that did nothing against you,” Gadhafi said in a televised speech.

Gadhafi did not appear on screen during the address, leading CNN’s Nic Robertson in Tripoli to speculate that the Libyan leader did not want to give the allies clues about his location.
