VRS ATTACK ON UN OBSERVATION POST 'FOXTROT'
UN REPORT
A VRS tank stopped 100 meters before UN observation post "Foxtrot."
The observation post lacked anti-tank guided missiles, but it did have AT-4 anti-tank rockets. However, the commander of B Company predicted that if the observation post did open fire on the VRS, fighting would escalate, likely preventing their withdrawal, with the risk that the soldiers at the observation post would be unable to find shelter from direct tank fire.
The company's commander, with the consent of the battalion commander, ordered the crew of the UN observation post to withdraw. VRS soldiers, upon entering the UN observation post, ordered its crew to abandon the post and surrender their arms. They were allowed to leave in their armored personnel carrier. Upon its withdrawal from the observation post, the UN APC with crew encountered a roadblock set up by the ARBiH. As the UN APC attempted to proceed through it, one ARBiH soldier shot at the vehicle, hitting and killing a UN soldier.
