DNA analysis of the remains found in mass graves has identified 5,977 to date. persons killed in Srebrenica. Most of these men were killed between 13 and 16 July 1995, mostly in mass shootings: at the Kravica warehouse (13 July: between 755 and 1,106 victims), Rahovec / Orahovac (14 July: at least 841 victims). ), at the dam in Petkovci (July 14: at least 815 victims), in Kozluk (July 16: at least 815 victims), at the Branjevo Military Farm (July 16: about 1,200 victims) and at the House of Culture in Pilica (July 16) : about 500 victims). Between 10,000 and 16,000 men fled to the forests around Srebrenica the day before the enclave fell, with the intention of gaining "free territories" under the control of the BiH Army. Search, capture and kill the remaining men lasted for weeks after the fall of Srebrenica. Some of these men crossed into the territory of the FRY. Evidence available to the public at least since 2005 shows that FRY border guards handed over every captured Srebrenica refugee man back to the VRS, contrary to Serbia's international obligations not to extradite persons to their country of origin, in this case BiH, if threatened. real danger to life and health (principle of international law known as non-refoulement).
