U.S. Bombs Iraqi Military Sites

Monday, 30 April 2001 12:00 AM

This is the first time in three weeks, and the sixth time this year, Western jets attacked the Iraq air defense system.

The coalition has been enforcing a no-fly zone in northern Iraq for nearly a decade, but only began facing armed resistance from Iraq after December 1998, when the United States led a four-day attack on Baghdad after dictator Saddam Hussein refused to allow U.N. arms inspectors to examine weapons-manufacturing facilities around the country.

U.S. jets last bombed Iraqi targets on April 6 in the northern no-fly zone. U.S. aircraft attacked a mobile early warning radar in southern Iraq on April 20, and an anti-aircraft artillery site on April 12.
