From CNN Correspondent Patty Davis

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- U.S. planes acting in self-defense bombed an Iraqi military command and control site southwest of Mosul, Iraq on Monday, the Pentagon's European Command said.

The U.S. pilots dropped laser-guided bombs after they were targeted by Iraqi radar and anti-aircraft artillery between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Iraqi time, officials said.

The damage is being assessed by the U.S. European Command.

The action marked the ninth time this month that coalition planes enforcing the Northern No-fly Zone have been either targeted by Iraqi radar or fired upon from the ground by Iraqi anti-aircraft artillery and then responded, officials said.

The U.S. aircraft are part of Operation Northern Watch.

There was no damage to the coalition aircraft, which returned safely to their base in Incirlik, Turkey.
