The Hague apologizes Dutch troops’ failure at massacre of 8000 Muslim prisoners

No Comments

The Netherlands offered its “deepest apologies” for the role played by Dutch peacekeepers in the Srebrenica genocide during the Balkans war when some 8,000 Bosnian Muslims were brutally murdered by attacking Bosnian Serb forces 27 years ago

The announcement came when thousands gathered at Srebrenica to commemorate the 27th anniversary of the atrocity on July 11.

For the first time since the 1995 massacre, Dutch Defense Minister Kajsa Ollongren apologized to survivors for the Dutch peacekeepers’ failure to prevent the killings.
