The recent extension of the ROLLING THUNDER Program to include attacks against military and economic targets in the heavily defended and densely populated areas around Hanoi and Haiphong has resulted in remarkably light damage to civilian structures. During the period 10 April to 22 May, strikes against 39 major targets in the Hanoi-Haiphong area and the Thai Nguyen iron and steel complex resulted in the destruction of 216 and damage to 50 civilian structures. Mot of these were single-family residences. Over 60 percent of the structures destroyed were at Yen Vien, the location of a rail classification yard. This yard is a small and extremely narrow target located in the midst of a densely populated area. An unknown amount of this damage was inflicted prior to 10 April 1967.
