U.N. Approves Srebrenica Genocide Resolution

HeadlineMay 24, 2024

The United Nations has approved a resolution declaring July 11 an international day of remembrance for the 1995 Srebrenica genocide. Some 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed in the massacre after Bosnian Serb armed forces stormed the U.N. safe zone during the Balkan Wars — seen as the worst atrocity in Europe’s history since World War II. The resolution was sponsored by Germany and Rwanda. Both Serbia and Bosnian Serbs have denied that genocide happened in Srebrenica. The resolution does not say Serbs are responsible for the massacre.
