On a perfectly clear summer day - Thursday, September 3, 1992 - an Italian G 222 turbo-propelled, twin-engine, nine-ton transport aircraft, with a five-ton shipment of blankets intended for Sarajevo has been shoot down north of city of Konjic.
Four crew (Italians) and four passengers (French citizens) on board were killed.
When American reconnaissance and rescue helicopters from the Iwo Jima tried to land, they came under small arms fire and an infra-red homing missile was fired from the ground.
France called this an "act of terrorism, US Department of State said they will wait for the final results of UNPROFOR and the Italian investigations.
We did not see results of this investigation, didnt we? Reason - according to Italian media investigation found out that unfortunate plane has been brought down deep in Croat-Muslim held territory by a Stinger. That Stinger was sent to Afghanistan mujahedin by international community and they sent it (and volunteers) to their brethren in muslim Bosnia.
I remember the shoot down, Zagor - speculation at the time had the local Croats (Kiseljak, I think) downing the plane in order to force aid to travel along road routes they controlled, allowing them to take their cut.
Knock off the BS.
I just read this.....there is confirmation that stingers were located in the Balkans from Afghanstan Muh. I personally spoke to the interviewer that did the lie detector test of several Albanians that were in the Bondsteel Holding fac. Whether they were used in this operation, I can't answer. They were there however........
Bosnia, thanks to its high-level infrastructure, organized government, and European connections, is able to offer jihadists the most for their money. But Albania, and Kosovo, thanks to their criminality, dis-organization, and purposeful chaos, offer the jihadists a very effective hide-out on Europe's doorstep. Although it is unfashionable to say so, Islam entails support for any Muslim's jihad, whether it be the "quest for inner peace and wisdom," or the conversion, enslavement, or death for infidels. "Moderate," Islam is merely an enabling mechanism for radical Islam.
