On this day 27 years ago, mass killings and torture of Bosniaks began. Mothers of Srebrenica visited the execution sites. In Kravica, the place where Bosniaks suffered the most in the genocide, they were met by a closed gate, and the traces of the crime were removed.
The families of the victims of the genocide in Srebrenica could not lay flowers in front of the Agricultural Cooperative in Kravica today. This was forbidden by the head of Bratunac Municipality, Srdjan Rankic, who is illegally reconstructing halls and erasing traces of genocide crimes. The flowers were placed on the fence of the Agricultural Cooperative.
As part of the commemoration of the 27th anniversary of the genocide against Bosniaks in the “UN protected zone” of Srebrenica, members of the association that gathers survivors of genocide, today, as in previous years, visited the places of mass murder of their loved ones in the genocide in July 1995… .
On July 13, 1995, in the Agricultural Cooperative in Kravica, members of the RS Army and Police shot more than 1,370 victims of the Srebrenica genocide.
The reconstruction of the halls, which cover up the crime of genocide, is financed by the Municipality of Bratunac and the Government of the Republika Srpska. This is not the first time that genocide victim families are forbidden to lay flowers and honor genocide victims who were killed in the Agricultural Cooperative. In 2013, the RS police prevented the victims’ families from visiting this mass execution site.
After Kravica, the families of genocide victims visited the mass execution site in Nova Kasaba, where on July 13, 1995, more than a thousand Bosniaks from Srebrenica were detained and shot at several locations in Podrinje.
Genocide victim families laid flowers and recited the Fatiha in front of the primary school in Orahovac. On July 14 and 15, 1995, more than 1,200 victims of the genocide who were shot not far from the school were detained in this school.
Just a few kilometers from Orhovac, in the town of Petkovci in Zvornik, on July 14 and 15, more than a thousand victims of the genocide were detained in the elementary school, and after being tortured, they were taken to the dam of Zvornik Glinice, where they were shot.
