  • Coalition Aircraft Respond To Iraqi Provocations February 16, 2001 -- In response to recent surface-to-air missile (SAM) and anti-aircraft artillery (AAA) fire against coalition forces that enforce United Nations Security Council Resolutions, Operation SOUTHERN WATCH aircraft struck Iraqi integrated air defense system sites at approximately 1215 Eastern Standard Time. United States and Britain planes on 16 February targeted six Iraqi command centers, including radar and communications centers, in order to prevent Iraq from being able to fire upon and bring down allied planes in future raids. US officials explained the necessity of this massive raid by pointing out that Iraqi air defenses had fired some 13 missiles at allied pilots in the first six weeks of this year, compared to one missile per month prior to that time. During this raid, the allies hit about 40 percent of the targets they sought to destroy or damage. The low hit rate has caused many defense analysts to call the strikes only a qualified success. The U.S.-British air strikes on Iraqi radar sites triggered a flood of editorials in overseas papers. West European papers for the most part avoided overt criticism of the air strikes, but were nevertheless highly skeptical of the efficacy of a "hardline" U.S. policy toward Iraq. Some Russian dailies echoed Kremlin criticism of the U.S.-British enforcement action, and China's official media, matching Arab invective, lashed out at the U.S.' "brutal attacks."
