Three years before the Srebrenica Genocide, Serbs plundered, torched, and destroyed nearly 300 Bosniak villages around Srebrenica, raped hundreds of Bosniak women and underage girls around Srebrenica and terrorized helpless Bosniak population in the besieged enclave of Srebrenica. Serbs were responsible for at least 90 per cent of all war crimes in Bosnia-Herzegovina. After the fall of Srebrenica in July 1995, Serbs torched Bosniak homes in/and around Srebrenica, opportunistically raped Bosniak women and underage girls, forcibly expelled 25,000 Bosniak women from the enclave (they couldn't kill them due to presence of the international bodies), and then systematically slaughtered 8,372 Bosniak men and boys. Here are some of the faces of Bosniak victims found in Lazete 1 mass grave (Photo courtesy: The International Criminal Tribunal at the Hague)
