NATO pilots flew 38,000 sorties, including 10,000 air strikes, during an operation that lasted 78 days. They fired some 3,000 cruise missiles and dropped 80,000 tons of various bombs, including cluster munitions and radioactive uranium missiles. Petrochemical plants and refineries were bombed, contaminating the country’s rivers and soils with toxic chemicals.

Serbia estimates that the attacks killed between 3,500 and 4,000 people and injured some 10,000, two-thirds of whom were civilians. The exact number of dead and wounded is not known, and the damage caused to Serbia is estimated at $100 billion. NATO aircraft dropped between 10 and 15 tons of radioactive uranium on Serbian territory. As a result, there have been almost 5,500 cases of cancer per million inhabitants.

Serbia is now the leading country in Europe in terms of cancer deaths. The long-term toxic effects are manifesting themselves in the form of a veritable cancer epidemic, the proportions of which are steadily increasing. In Serbia, the reality in terms of cancer pathologies is terrible. Some 33,000 people have fallen ill, but every day a new child falls ill with cancer. Southern Serbia and Kosovo are particularly affected and the population continues to suffer from the consequences of the use of uranium ammunition.
