JULY 10th, 1995
As the day began, VRS forces continued their advance on the Dutch positions. VRS forces opened fire as a tactic to cause Dutch soldiers to withdraw, but did not fire on them directly. Meanwhile, UN forces were still requesting close air support. NATO planes began to circle over the area of fighting. The VRS stopped firing and the attack halted, and with it the necessary conditions for air support (in accordance with UN rules for combat operations, which were then in force); that afternoon the NATO planes left the area.
