was subjected to indiscriminate shelling from all directions on a daily basis. Potočari in particular was a daily target for Serb artillery and infantry because it was a sensitive point in the defence line around Srebrenica.

battalion, launched a massive simultaneous assault, starting with the attack by the Serb Volunteer Guard paramilitary forces on Bijeljina. The attacks soon spread to Foča, Zvornik, Bosanski Šamac, Vlasenica, Prijedor, Brčko (Brčko (city)), and was punctuated by the blockading of the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo to the southwest. Non-Serbs had their property confiscated, were deported en masse, and many men of military age or of political, community, religious or cultural importance were murdered on sight or in mass executions in villages such as Kozarac, Gornja Grapska in Doboj, the Hotel Posavina in Brčko, the Crkvina warehouse in Bosanski Šamac, and detention centers such as the Brčko Partizan (Partizan Belgrade) sports hall. Many other non-Serb men were interred at infamous concentration camps such as Omarska (Omarska camp) and Keraterm (Keraterm camp), while the women, children and elderly fled south toward the towns of Srebrenica and Žepa. In 1995 Gen. Mladić plans another offensive in eastern Bosnia and takes it into action. The offensive succeeds due to the inaction of the UN peacekeeping forces. Serb forces take Dutch (Netherlands) peacekeepers hostages, and assault the towns of Srebrenica and Žepa, both designated 'safe areas' by the UN. Bosnian forces firmly believed that the UN troops would protect them from Serb aggression, hence they were totally unprepared. Both Srebrenica and Žepa fall to the Serbs. Over 8,000 Bosniak males were massacred in Srebrenica (Srebrenica Massacre), while the Bosniak population in Žepa was expelled. The UN's peacekeeping efforts in Bosnia have failed. After suffering much diplomatic humiliation at the hands of Bosnian Serbs, the United States begins bombing strategic Serb positions. Now the Serbs have turned the rest of the world their enemy; a joint Croat-Bosnian offensive (Operation Storm) drives most Serbs out of northern Bosnia, and the Serbs return to the negotiating table. Sacco came to Gorazde in the immediate aftermath of these events through the 'blue road', a narrow road opened by the UN peacekeepers that links sieged Gorazde to the rest of Bosnia. A panel discussion titled "Truth about Srebrenica (w:Srebrenica)" held at the law school at the University of Belgrade (w:University of Belgrade) yesterday almost turned into a physical fight between panel participants and several dozen protesters. Tens of thousands of people gathered in Srebrenica (w:Srebrenica) today to remember the massacre (w:Sebrenica Massacre) of over 8,000 Muslims, mostly men and boys, which happened on 11th July 1995. This is considered the worst atrocity in Europe since the end of World War II. In comments to the court, Karadzic said that murder of seven thousand Muslims in Srebrenica (w:Srebrenica), as well as the siege in Sarajevo (w:Sarajevo), was staged or made up in order to demean the Serbs.

In 1585, the miners were forced to work night and day and had to pay increased taxes, leading to protests and the danger that they may migrate. By the time, Chiprovtsi was already providing a revenue of 1,400,000 ''akçe'', making it one of the empire's prime mining and metalworking regions.

After the VRS forces took over Srebrenica on July 11, the Serbs began to send male Bosniaks to various locations for execution (Mass executions in the Srebrenica massacre). His most famous military forays were those in 1476, when he seized Srebrenica, and fought near Šabac and Smederevo, and in 1480, when he attacked Sarajevo. In 1479, along with Dmitar Jakšić, he led Serbian light cavalry squadrons in Battle of Breadfield (Kenyérmező), near Zsibót. At the decisive moment in battle Hungarian and Serbian cavalries charged Turkish center and broke their ranks, which decided the outcome of the battle. In 1481, he fought against Turks in Serbia, and brought from there (area around Kruševac) about 50,000 people, who were settled in Banat, mostly around Timişoara. thumb right 200px Potočari 11.

On April 8 Black Legion (Black Legion (Ustaše militia)) units came into heavy fighting with Bosnian Chetniks near the Drina river. The Germans started their advance on April 22 towards blocked Rogatica and pushed the Partisan forces back. UN "Safe Area" warnings On August 15, 1994, Krstić was appointed Chief of Staff (Chief of staff (military)) of the Drina Corps. Krstić worked with his replacement to familiarize him with his roles and function until September 1, and then worked with the former Chief of Staff whom he would be replacing to learn his new post until September 28. He was then briefed about Bosnian operations coming from the direction of Tuzla, Živinice, Kladanj, and Olovo against Serbian defense lines. His predecessor also briefed him and told him that, despite the status of the safe area accorded to Srebrenica and Žepa and the obligations stemming from agreements on demilitarization, the forces of the 28th Mountain Division of the Eastern Bosnia Corps in Srebrenica and Žepa were, in fact procuring from Tuzla and Kladanj or directly from Sarajevo more weapons in addition to the light or infantry weapons they already had. Five days later the JNA, including Obrenović's battalion, launched a massive simultaneous assault, starting with the attack by the Serb Volunteer Guard paramilitary forces on Bijeljina. The attacks soon spread to Foča, Zvornik, Bosanski Šamac, Vlasenica, Prijedor, Brčko (Brčko (city)), and was punctuated by the blockading of the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo to the southwest.

Srebrenica

'''Naser Orić''' (born March 3, 1967) is a former Bosniak military officer who commanded the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina forces in the Srebrenica enclave in Eastern Bosnia surrounded by Serb (Serbs) forces, during the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia and Herzegovina (Bosnian War).

The Chetniks systemically massacred Muslims in villages that they captured. In late autumn of 1941 the Italians handed over the towns of Višegrad, Goražde, Foča and the surrounding areas, in south-east Bosnia to the Chetniks to run as a puppet administration and NDH forces were compelled by the Italians to withdraw from there. Hoare (2006) (#Hoare_2006), p. 145 After the Chetniks gained control of Goražde on 29 November 1941, they began a massacre of Home Guard prisoners and NDH officials that became a systematic massacre of the local Muslim civilian population. Several hundred Muslims were murdered and their bodies were left hanging in the town or thrown into the Drina river. On 5 December 1941, the Chetniks received the town of Foča from the Italians and proceeded to massacre around five hundred Muslims. Additional massacres against the Muslims in the area of Foča took place in August 1942. In total, over two thousand people were killed in Foča. In early January, the Chetniks entered Srebrenica and killed around a thousand Muslim civilians in the town and in nearby villages. Hoare (2006) (#Hoare_2006), p. 147 Around the same time the Chetniks made their way to Višegrad where deaths were reportedly in the thousands. Hoare (2006) (#Hoare_2006), p. 146 Massacres continued in the following months in the region. In the village of Žepa alone about three hundred were killed in late 1941. In early January, Chetniks massacred fifty-four Muslims in Čelebić and burned down the village. On 3 March, the Chetniks burned forty-two Muslim villagers to death in Drakan.

Organizations such as the Society for Threatened Peoples, reporting to the United Nations Human Rights Council in 2008, claim that non-Serbian refugees returning to Republika Srpska are discriminated against and live under appalling conditions, particularly in the Drina Valley (Srebrenica, Bratunac, Višegrad and Foča). Many are unemployed and children must attend schools where all subjects are taught in Serbian. Similar things are taking place in the Federation of Bosnia where the problem of segregation is very visible in Herzegovinan and some Bosnian cities where the population is predominantly Croatian. Separate schools for Croatians and non-Croatians are formed. Croatian nationality students are taught using Croatian curriculum whereas Serbian and Bosniak pupils are taught according to the curriculum of Bosnia and Herzegovina

'''Kravica''' (Serbian Cyrillic: ''Кравица'') is a predominantly Serb populated village in Bratunac county near Srebrenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The joint command of ARBiH, HVO and Croatian Army (HV) was established in March 1995. The closer cooperation between Croats and Bosniaks was made in city of Split (Split (city)) where Bosnia and Herzegovina allowed Croatian Army to free western part of Bosnia and Herzegovina with cooperation with ARBiH. After the Operation Storm, the Serbian hoop around Bihać was broken and Croatian and Bosnian armies continued to liberate western Bosnia. The UN unsuccessfully tried to establish peace in Bosnia and Herzegovina by trying to make a successful structure of Bosnia and Herzegovina. UN showed a total inability when Serbs conquered UN-protected towns, Srebrenica and Žepa. Serbs also launched on UN-protected town of Bihać, but they were stopped by Croatian army during the Operation Storm. Joint Croatian-Bosnian military successes made peace negotiations possible.
