During the afternoon, an armed reconnaissance patrol over Hun
was tasked by NATO to attack a mobile radar system which had been

launchers deployed just to the east of the town, well within

undergoing a short period of planned maintenance. This has been
co-ordinated with NATO and operations are not affected.
