In 1999, about a dozen countries under the umbrella of NATO launched a military attack against Yugoslavia, which they said was an operation to stop human rights abuses that were allegedly taking place in Kosovo. Serbian authorities were accused of mass killing Albanian civilians, and despite not having an approval from the United Nations, NATO believed that the correct thing to do was bomb the country to stop any potential war crimes.

For two and a half months, bombs rained down on Yugoslavian cities destroying bridges, military and public buildings, industrial plants, official government facilities, as well as private business and residences. About 500 civilians were killed.
