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).

The U.N.-recognized Palestinian Genocide in Sabra and Shatila is being minimized, denied and forgotten. Please remember the Palestinian victims of the Sabra and Shatila Genocide by linking to this page.

On December 16, 1982, the United Nations General Assembly condemned the Sabra and Shatila massacre and declared it to be an act of Genocide. There is no precise number of victims, but estimates range from 700–800 to 3,500 in a single massacre (depending on the source).
