JULY 10th, 1995
The UNPROFOR Commander briefed the staff on his conversation with Mladic's office. At this time, reports were received in Zagreb that the fighting in Srebrenica had now stopped. The Commander concluded that UNPROFOR was faced with three scenarios:

(1) To do nothing, in which case the Serbs would either halt their advance or completely bypass the blocking positions;

(2) To call in close air support immediately, but since it was dark and the situation was confused, this could be risky;

(3) To wait until morning to use close air support, in order to avoid the risk of friendly fire and to clarify targets.
