ČTK: Czech chemical batallion comes under rocket attack

KUVAJT/PRAHA 21. března (ČTK) – Czech and Slovak chemists in Kuwait were the target of a repeated rocket attack; all shots were liquidated by anti-airborne defenses and the soldiers are all right. Journalists were notified today by telephone from Kuwait by DuÅ¡an Lupuljev, the commander of the First Czech-Slovak Antichemical Battalion.

Since the beginning of the war with Iraq, six rockets have been fired into the Czech-Slovak battalion’s dislocation area. The last was liquidated this morning by the US Patriot anti-rocket system, Lupuljev said.
