Operation Eagle Eye was part of the Kosovo Verification Mission during the Kosovo War. Beginning on 17 October 1998, the aim was to monitor the federal Yugoslav government's compliance with United Nations Security Council Resolution 1199, and in particular the withdrawal of armed forces from Kosovo and compliance with the ceasefire.[1]

The monitors comprised 1,400 ground observers. As a result of Yugoslav troop activities and other forms of non-compliance, the ground observers withdrew citing "an unacceptable level of risk to the peace support verification mission"[1], resulting in an end to aerial verification on March 24, 1999.


Aircraft were contributed by France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, the UK, and the USA.
