"In 1995 in Srebrenica about 8000 Muslim Bosnians were killed by Serbianorthodox militias under Mladic, Karadzic and Milosevic, as they had been Muslims and therefore “alien objects” in a Christian state."--About Persecutors and Persecuted People, Roland Fakler

"Serbian propaganda during the Bosnian War portrayed the Bosnian Muslims as violent extremists and Islamic-fundamentalists. Arabic-speaking mercenaries primarily from the Middle East and North Africa, called Mujahideen, came into Bosnia in the second half of 1992 with the aim of helping their Muslim brothers. The Serb media, however, reported a much bigger number of Mujahideen and presented them as terrorists and a huge threat to European security in order to inflame anti-Muslim hatred among Serbs and other Christians. Although Serbian media created much controversy about alleged war crimes committed by them, no indictment was issued by ICTY against any of these foreign volunteers." --Propaganda during the Yugoslav Wars

The Bosnian War was an international armed conflict that took place in Bosnia and Herzegovina between 1992 and 1995. Following a number of violent incidents in early 1992, the war is commonly viewed as having started on 6 April 1992. The war ended on 14 December 1995. The main belligerents were the forces of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina and those of the self-proclaimed Bosnian Serb and Bosnian Croat entities within Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republika Srpska and Herzeg-Bosnia, who were led and supplied by Serbia and Croatia respectively.
