Statement by the NATO Spokesman

Yesterday NATO aircraft carried out a successful attack against an army barracks in Surdulica, Southern Yugoslavia.

Any claim that NATO targets civilians is totally false. We take every possible precaution to prevent harm to civilians. But unfortunately we cannot completely exclude the possibility of harm to civilians, or to civilian property, during a conflict such as this one.
