Hi Peter, The zones were imposed by the US, the UK and France without authority from the United Nations. SCR 688, passed during the 1991 intifada, has often been cited as the resolution that the no-fly zones enforce. The CASI website has a brief commentary on this at http://www.cam.ac.uk/societies/casi/info/scriraq.html#1991. Last February, Sarah Graham-Brown wrote a MERIP PIN (http://www.merip.org/pins/pin49.html) on the zones.
