Operation Allied Force Update

Unfavorable weather had a major impact on planned operations on Day 47 of Operation Allied Force. NATO aircraft flew 317 sorties yesterday, well below recent levels. The number of strike sorties was also lower as a result.

Strategic targets attacked during the past 24 hours included:

  • Nis airfield
  • Military radio relay site at Kosovska Mitrovica
  • Petroleum storage site at Pristina

Strikes against Serb forces in Kosovo included:

  • Two tanks near Rznik
  • Ten revetted armoured personnel carriers near Kalavaj
  • Camouflaged military equipment
  • Command post
  • Military assembly areas

All aircraft returned safely.

Allied Force operations are underway on Day 48. Further details will be provided at Spokesman Jamie Shea's morning update at 1030.
