In operation Maestral, NATO starts heavy bombardment of Serb positions, mostly around Sarajevo. Izetbegovic Muslim forces and Tudjmans HVO forces from Croatia use this advantage and starts a coordinated attack on Serb populated places in Western Bosnia & Hercegovina.
The propaganda trigger used for this action was the Massacre in the Sarajevo Markale market on Aug 28, 1995.
The Joint NATO, The Muslim Army and Croatian HVO army occupies large areas in Western Bosnia including places such as: Drvar, Sipovo, Jajce, Bosanski Petrovac, Bosanska Krupa, Kljuc and Donji Vakuf just to name a few..
The operation Maestral offensive lasted between September 8 and September 17, 1995.
The so called International community had no problem with Croatia sending its troops to Bosnia and in a joint operation together with NATO and the Muslim Army, cleanse all the areas in Western Bosnia of its Serb population.
September 13 Donji Vakuf Serb population reach an agreement with the Muslim forces which will allow the civilians to be evacuated from Donji Vakuf. The evacuation is almost carried out but the Muslims decides to NOT allow all vehicles to leave. At least one bus filled with civilians including women and children is shot at and burned before it managed to leave the city...
In Donji Vakuf area, Bosnia and Hercegovina this year 2014, on the site of the Orthodox cemetery near local hospital, seven total human corpses were exhumed. They are presumed to be the remains of Serbs killed in 1995. says spokesperson for the Missing Persons Institute of Bosnia and Herzegovina Lejla Cengic.
The remains contain bones of five men and two women. Bone samples for DNA analysis were taken on site and remains were returned to the same burial sites from which they were exhumed. They will remain there until the final determination of identity.
Cengic stressed that the exhumations at the site of the Orthodox cemetery in Donji Vakuf will be continued tomorrow.
Examination of places where Serbs are believed to be buried, does not seem to be of any priority to the Bosnia & Hercegovina authorities since there still are some 700 known places which are still NOT checked after all these years.
