TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ Units of the 138th Fighter Wing of the Oklahoma Air National Guard are expected to leave in about two weeks for a mission in the Middle East.

Lt. Col. Willie Braggs, the Tulsa-based wing's chief of staff, said Wednesday the wing will fly missions from Kuwait as part of Operation Southern Watch, which enforces the ``no-fly zone'' over southern Iraq.

Braggs said details are still being worked out.
