Iraq Asks UN to Stop Air Attacks

Iraq urged the United Nations to stop an “undeclared war” waged by US and British warplanes as Iraqi air defense facilities were bombed for the second straight day yesterday.

Iraqi Foreign Minister Naji Sabri, in a letter to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, said allied planes based in neighboring Kuwait had violated Iraqi airspace on 1,141 occasions between Nov. 9 and Dec. 6.

“These daily violations...facilitated by the government of Kuwait, and the barbaric bombing of Iraq’s cities and villages, have reached the level of an undeclared war,” Sabri wrote. “The United Nations must take the necessary steps in line with the (UN) charter to halt the aggression.”

An Iraqi military spokesman said the planes had struck civilian installations in the southern provinces of Dhi Qar and Wasit. Iraqi anti-aircraft and missile batteries fired back.
