DID YOU KNOW?  -- Three years before the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide, Serbs torched Bosniak villages and killed at least 3,166 Bosniaks around Srebrenica. In 1993, the UN described the besieged situation in Srebrenica as a "slow-motion process of genocide." In July 1995, Serbs forcibly expelled 25,000 Bosniaks, brutally raped many women and girls, and systematically killed 8,000+ men and boys (DNA confirmed).

Members of the forensic expert team from Tuzla, International Commission on Mising Persons (ICMP), and the Court of Bosnia-Herzegovina, began a preliminary work on the mass grave located on a garbage dump near the village of Zalazje. The location of this mass grave was confirmed by the RS (Bosnian Serb) government. The surface of the mass grave already contains skeletal remains, according to Sadik Selimovic of the Institute for Missing Persons. The size of the mass grave is 80 x 20 metres and, based on dimensions, it is expected to yield a large number of skeletal remains.

"After the Serbs executed Srebrenica Bosniaks in the Agrarian Cooperative Kravica, the victims were then transported and buried in the Glogova mass grave near Bratunac. From that location, according to yet unconfirmed information, the remains were transported and re-buried in Zeleni Jadar, and then dug out and re-buried on this location in Zalazje," explained Cantonal Prosecutor Alma Dzaferovic. / Source: FENA
