NATO war on Yugoslavia: Serbia to sue NATO for the use of depleted uranium munitions in 1999
Serbia is about to file a lawsuit against NATO, and has formed an international legal team, over the illegal use of depleted uranium munitions during its three months bombing of Yugoslavia some 18 years back.
In March, 1999, during the Kosovo War, NATO launched a series of airstrikes against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, that took the lives of hundreds of civilians. The airstrikes did not have the mandate of the United nations.
“The NATO bombing of Serbia in 1999 used between 10 and 15 tons of depleted uranium, which caused a major environmental disaster,” said Srdjan Aleksic, a Serbian lawyer who leads the legal team. “In Serbia, 33,000 people fall sick because of this every year. That is one child every day.”
