WRONG FORM - JULY 11th, 1995
It seems the Dutch battalion forwarded a request for close air support when they realized there would be no air strikes.
Sector North-East: A UN witness recalled from his personal log that he telephoned the Dutch at 0839 hours to confirm that the request had been received in Sarajevo.
The Dutch battalion then forwarded what would be their second request that morning. A delay of approximately 30 minutes in relaying this request may have occurred because the request was either deemed by a staff officer in Sector North-East to have been incomplete, filled out on the wrong form, or because the telephone lines between Srebrenica and Tuzla had been down.
