Weapons haul in MND-SE
January 4, Multinational Division-Southeast (MND-SE) forces
carried out a well-planned operation in the area of Pale. A reconnaissance
patrol found and seized a weapons storage site located in an old railway-tunnel.
This action has removed a possible mine danger to the local people.
This resulted in the seizure of a large quantity of weapons and ammunition
seized. This includes more than twelve thousand rifle rounds and explosives
materials seized are destined for destruction.
This storage site was a threat and the MND-SE commander considers this
issue a serious non-compliance of the Annex1A of the Dayton Peace Agreement.
The investigation will go on until the people responsible are identified.
Entity Armed Forces commanders and political authorities have been informed
about this matter and SFOR is awaiting their answers.
MND-SE has acted in accordance with Art. VI §6 and Art. IV §
5b of the Annex 1A of the Dayton Peace Agreement.
MND-SE Commander wants to stress once again that every weapon and round
