Survey of Osonica site
On August 10, 2021, following assertions of residents of Osonica settlement in the Municipality of Ivanjica that unexploded bombs remaining from the 1999 bombing could be found in their community, representatives of Serbian Mine Action Centre conducted a survey of the site, and aiming to warn the population of danger and ban an entry, marked suspected area in accordance with the International Mine Action Standards.
Until now, the site has not been registered as suspected in the SMAC database. Relevant data have been collected from the Ministry of Interior, as well as the Ministry of Defence. The site was targeted 43 times on 4 occasions during the 1999 bombing, and it will be registered in the database as suspected.
Based on the available information, analysis and comparison of the results from the field, SMAC will develop a project for removal of these bombs and endeavour to find financial means for urgent implementation of this project.
