Read and heed.

Iraqi forces continue to fire antiaircraft artillery at coalition aircraft enforcing no-fly zones over Iraq. Subsequently, coalition planes have been dropping leaflets urging Iraqi military forces not to engage coaltion aircrews. The leaflets state the consequences of such actions to ensure local civilians are properly informed. Typically 3 x 6 inches, the publications are written in Arabic and dropped in fiberglass containers that explode over designated areas to increase scatter and drift to the ground. In this example, the English translation is provided for information purposes.
