Operation Allied Force Update

NATO air forces took advantage of continued favorable weather during the day yesterday to concentrate air attacks against Serb forces in Kosovo, particularly in the Prizren, Stimlje, Suva Reka and Junik areas. The weather deteriorated during the night on Day 50, particularly in the north. This led to cancellation of some planned attacks.

Strikes included armour; a range of military vehicles, some revetted; troop, artillery and mortar positions; a SA-6 transloader; a logistics staging area; and tunnel complex.

It attacks on airfields at Batajnica and Obvra, five additional Yugoslav aircraft were destroyed on the ground.

Strategic targets included:

Military communications sites at:

  • Kosovska
  • Novi Sad
  • Stara Pazova

Highway bridges at:

  • Milosevo
  • West Orlate
  • East Orlate

All NATO aircraft returned safely. Allied Force operations are underway on Day 51. Further details will be provided at Spokesman Jamie Shea's morning update at 1030.
