Bosnia & Hercegovina is still a part of the sovereign country of Yugoslavia. Alija Izetbegovic and his Islamic party cooking the coming bloody soup and trying to figure out how to exclude the constitutional Serbian people of Bosnia from a referendum on the issue of secession.
Meanwhile his secret paramilitary including mujahedin fighters from Arab countries and armed with the help of Austrian and German intelligence are preparing the ground for a war. Together with Armed forces from Croatia, strategic areas are being occupied and everything that is not Muslim or Croatian is being treated as trash, including the Serb population of Brod.
Town and community center (4097 Croats, 2284 Muslims, 4409 Serbs, 2711 Yugoslavs and 544 other) was occupied March 3, 1992. Croat-Muslim unit 108 Brigade of the National Guard from the Republic of Croatia in cooperation and with the assistance of local paramilitaries. It was the first act of occupation of the territory and open aggression from Republic of Croatia and its armed units against Bosnia and Yugoslavia.
The town, like many villages of the municipality, especially those inhabited by Serbs were occupied and residents subjected to daily harassment, robbery and murder. Until the liberation of the municipality in October 7, 1992. in the city usually in a very cruel way and in their own homes and apartments, dozens of people of Serbian nationality were killed. Other Serbs were imprisoned and taken to a camp, many of whom were in the territory of R. Croatia.
In the camps for Serbs, those in Bosnia as well as those of R. Croatia, dozens of people from Brod and surrounding villages were killed. And the town itself was turned into a camp and Serbs were not allowed out of the area. (At that time, the bridge over the Sava River between Bosanski and Slavonski Brod had a warning-sign which stated that Serbs and dogs were forbidden to cross the bridge.) Fate of its believers is also shared by Serbian Orthodox churches.
Serbian Orthodox cemetery was demolished. The church "Holy Virgin" built 1890s mined and totally destroyed. Looted and damaged by shelling Parohiski Dom. And other monuments devastated: memorial ossuary from victims of fascist terror of the Second World War also destroyed; mined Monument to the Murdered Jews of Tulek; monument to national hero Dragi Vidošević - mined; monument in Mahala by the river Sava, also victims of fascism-mined; memorial bust of Fric Pavlik in High School Center - mined.
Copying former Ustasha raids (ww2) all the anti-fascist symbols, or symbols of German, Croatian and Muslim crimes in the last war during the reign of NDH on the Serbian people of this region were destroyed. The executions of Serbs of Brod began on 25 March, 1992. early in the morning, brutally, without direct provocation, three persons of Serbian nationality were killed.
Their house was destroyed and burned. The crime was committed by a group of Croatian extremists, members of the Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ), and by this act, to a large extent, they have announced the following upcoming events of primarily Croat, and Muslim, terror against the Serbian people in this part of Brod and Bosanska Posavina.
Victims: 1) Andrija (Petar) Martić, 1935; his son 2) Momir (Andrija) Martić, 1961. and 3) Duško (Milan) Dujanić, 1967. On this occasion, also Momirs wife Merima were seriously injured. (dev. Kondžić) and Branko Dujanić.

Bosnia: Mass graves with Serb victims found 368 bodies had been exhumed from the mass graves in Brod,
BROD -- Five locations have been discovered in the RS, suspected to be mass graves containing the remains of murdered Serbs.
So far 368 bodies have been exhumed from the massgraves in Brod. This is a location with one of the biggest massgraves found in Bosnia and yet, not much have been heard about this discovery in the mainstream media. But then again, if the mainstream media shares the opinions of the Ustasha and Muslims in Brod where Serbs are equal to dogs, then its understandable that the MSM doesn’t find any news value into discoveries such as this one.
The Municipal Association for the Search for Prisoners-of-War and Missing Civilians from Brod has discovered a mass grave in the region, containing the bodies of victims suspected of being killed by the Croatian regular army and the joint Muslim and Croat armed forces during 1992.
"The Operational Missing Persons Team from the Republic of Srpska (RS) was told about mass burial sites that needed to be investigated,” said association president Marko Grabovac, adding that two of the locations were located at the Banjica Catholic cemetery.
He said that during the six-month occupation in 1992, there had been 10 camps in the municipality of Bosanski Brod housing over 2,000 Serbs from Brod, Derventa, Modriča, Odžak and Doboj.
"At least half were killed, their bodies thrown into the Sava river,” Grabovac said.
He added that so far 368 bodies had been exhumed from the mass graves in Brod, and that 263 victims had been identified, all of them Serb.
"The first mass grave where the bodies of murdered Serbs were buried, was discovered in 1993 at the City Cemetery, where we exhumed 92 victims,” Grabovac said.
He said that requests had been lodged long ago with prosecution offices in Doboj and Zenica to establish the whereabouts of 59 bodies, including 23 children’s skeletons exhumed from a mass grave in Sijekovac, near Brod.
