Three days after the adoption of this resolution, however, eighteen Kosovo civilians were reportedly killed when FRY forces used mortars against the village of Gomje Obrinje and the fighting continued. On 13 October 1998, therefore, the North Atlantic Council issued activation orders for air strikes against the FRY to commence four days later unless the FRY complied with the requirements of resolution 1999.

Can you explain the meaning of 'activation orders'?
