Cavusoglu: Events in Srebrenica – a black spot in the history of mankind

The events in Srebrenica are a black spot in the history of mankind.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu wrote about this on Twitter in connection with the 26th anniversary of the genocide in the city of Srebrenica in the east of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The head of Turkish diplomacy wished the souls of the victims of the genocide to rest, and patience to their families and the brotherly Bosnian people.

The minister accompanied the publication with an image with the inscription “Genocide in Srebrenica. We have not forgotten, we will not forget. “

Genocide in Srebrenica

On July 11, 1995, Serbian units under the command of Ratko Mladic entered Srebrenica, declared a “safe zone” by the UN.

Serbian units brutally massacred at least 8,372 unarmed Muslims, including women and children.

The slain Bosniaks were buried in mass graves.

The International Court of Justice of the United Nations in 2007 recognized the events in Srebrenica as an act of genocide.

On November 22, 2017, the International War Crimes Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague sentenced former commander of the Bosnian Serb forces Ratko Mladic to life imprisonment, having found him guilty of committing genocide and crimes against humanity.

On 8 June this year, the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals (IOMUT) upheld the life sentence against the “Bosnian butcher” Ratko Mladic.

The Appeals Chamber of the Tribunal in The Hague confirmed the sentence to Mladic.
