Joint Forge: 1,001 nights

Three main events, March 1999

Three main events occurred in the area during March 1999: the arbitration on Brcko that separated the Republika Srpska in two parts, eastern and western (March 5); the sacking by the High Representative of the elected president of Republika Srpska, Mr. Nikola Poplasen (same date); and the beginning of the NATO bombing campaign on Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (March 24). All around the country, alert states and precautionary measures for the international community, including SFOR, were increased for about three months.
