Yesterday in Zepa near Han Pijesak, the 29th anniversary of the death of 45 Serb fighters killed in a gorge in an ambush set by members of the Muslim forces, despite a previous agreement, was marked.
Parastos was attended by a large number of relatives, comrades, friends, representatives of the municipality and the authorities of the city of East Sarajevo.
The envoy of the Serbian member and chairman of the Presidency of BiH, Boško Tomić, reminded of the agreement on the passage of the column, but that it was not respected, even though the Serbian army had previously passed through several Muslim villages without firing a single bullet.
– Muslim forces, using that unfavorable terrain, attacked the Serbian army from all sides, and on that occasion, 45 soldiers were brutally killed and 50 wounded – said Tomić, who was one of the participants in that event.
Tomic said that such an opportunity gives the right that everyone in this area should take care of the Republika Srpska, because suffering happens without the state and the army.
– What we have to take care of is to cultivate memories of the people who gave their lives and weaved them into what we have today and that we have to take care of the families of the victims and their children in order to give them recognition – said Tomic .
The president of the Veterans’ Organization of the municipality of Pale, Mihajlo Paradjina, said that this is a kind of pilgrimage all these years, as long as they come to this holy place, consecrated with the blood of Serbian sons.
Paradjina reminded that there was an agreement with the representatives of the Muslim side that the column of the Serbian army would pass towards Zlovrh, carrying food and fuel for 13 soldiers who were providing a relay at that elevation.
He added that the Serbian side was betrayed and that the column was attacked from all sides in the gorge where 45 soldiers were killed.
Paradjina said that it is necessary for current and future generations to learn the principle of nurturing memories and not to forget those who died for Republika Srpska.
– Republika Srpska is a huge heritage and an exceptional value and it is the guarantor of the security of the Serbian people within BiH and it is paid with the most expensive possible price, lives and body parts – said Paradjina.
Dane Petrović from Paljan, a member of the Buložan company, was a participant in this mascara in Žepa. He told reporters that his unit was accompanied by a column that was transporting food and fuel to Zlovrh, and that after the incursion into the Muslim ambush in the gorge, they experienced a real massacre because they were attacked from all sides.
– No one has ever asked who is responsible for this accident in which 45 people were brutally killed and a large number wounded – Petrovic pointed out.
He expressed satisfaction that more and more people from the area of the Sarajevo-Romanija region near the memorial in Zepa, especially young people, to pay homage to the shadows of the killed Serbian fighters.
Petrovic pointed out that a complex and a chapel should be built on the site of the suffering of Serbian fighters, where a history lesson could be held for young generations about Serbian suffering in the past defense-patriotic war.
The flowers were laid at the memorial in Zepa by the envoy Tomic, the mayor Ljubisa Cosic, the representatives of the municipal veterans’ organizations and the municipalities of East Stari Grad, Han Pijesak, Pale, Rogatica and the delegation of the Circle of Serbian Sisters from Pale.
