Peacekeepers report 8 unidentified flights over Georgia-Ossetia conflict zone

Peacekeepers’ observation posts in the zone of the Georgian-South Ossetian conflict registered eight lights by unidentified jet planes over the area last night, an aide to the commander of the CIS Collective Peacekeeping Force, Vladimir Ivanov, said on Wednesday.

"On the night from August 5 to August 6, between 20:00 and 05:00 Moscow time, observation posts registered eight flights by jet planes from the south (from the city of Gori) to the north (the village of Dzhava)," Ivanov said.

"The appearance of military planes over the conflict zone is a gross violation of the decision of the Joint Control Commission for the resolution of the Georgian-South Ossetian conflict of July 30, 2002 ‘On Unauthorised Flights of Aircraft over the Territory of the Area Controlled by the CIS Collective Peacekeeping Force’," Ivanov said.
