Today, Tuzla marks the 24th anniversary of the horrific massacre in Kapija, when the grenade was fired from Ozren Mountain on May 25, 1995, killing 71 people and wounded more than 200.

This massacre, also known as the crime over Tuzla’s Youth, is one of the worst crimes committed against civilians in Tuzla.

A commemorative event, a memory of the victims of the tragedy and all civilian victims of the recent war, began today in Slana Banja by letting 71 pigeons in the air, laying wreaths and flowers in commemoration of the civilian victims of the massacre.

Numerous friends began to come to the location of the “Aleja mladosti” Memorial Complex where they visited the eternal rest of innocent civilians whose lives were interrupted on the Day of Youth.

Flowers and wreaths were laid by the leaders of the city and cantonal authorities, delegations of the Government of FBiH, numerous associations and organizations, citizens and many others who remembered with great sorrow and pain on May 25, 1995.

The grenade from Ozren fired on that date the Serbian army under Novak Đukić’s command, who ordered the shooting of civilian targets in Tuzla with cannon missiles.

Novak Djukic is at liberty today and resides in Serbia whose citizenship he owns.

Tonight at 20.55 pm, at the time when a fatal grenade on May 25, 1995, sirens will be ringing in Tuzla.

Cannon from the Kicelj will not mark the start of the iftar tonight.
