- Story Text: A NATO F-16 fighter fired at a Bosnian Serb radar and missile site on Friday (September 8) when the radar locked onto the jet as it flew over Bosnia on a bombing raid, a NATO spokesman said.
NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation) and the United Nations say they will keep bombing the Bosnian Serbs until they withdraw heavy weapons from a 20-km (12 mile) exclusion zone declared around Sarajevo in February 1994, unblock aid routes and open the airport.
NATO's top military commander in Bosnia suggested on Friday the alliance could step up air operations to force recalcitrant Bosnian Serbs to comply with United Nations (U.N.) orders.
Rapid Reaction Forces fired their big guns at Bosnian Serb positions around Sarajevo on Friday as peace talks were underway in Geneva.
British Rapid Reaction Forces fired twelve 105mm shells at Bosnian Serb targets in Bosnian Serb-held Hadici after troops on Mount Igman near Sarajevo came under fire from Bosnian Serbs.
