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).

Some forty-thousand [40,000] Bosniaks were targeted for extinction in Srebrenica, according to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (source). More than 8,000 were executed, while approximately 30,000 were forcibly expelled from the enclave in a massive scale ethnic cleansing campaign.

The most up to date research results come from the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP). Of 8,372 victims of the Srebrenica genocide, who died in July of 1995, 6481 have been identified through DNA forensic technology conducted by the ICMP. However, the ICMP's analysis of blood-samples support an estimate of 8,100 victims killed in July 1995.
