We will never forget the 1999 NATO aggression, Serbian PM Ana Brnabic said on Friday.

“Today, we mark 24 years since NATO aggression, committed against Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia & Montenegro). We will never forget,” Brnabic wrote in a post on her Twitter account that also included video footage of the 1999 NATO campaign.

At the heart of Europe, Serbia was targeted by attacks for 78 days – around 4,000 people were killed, captions in the footage said.

“Eighty-nine children were killed. A thousand and eight members of security forces – 659 army servicemen and 349 police officers – lost their lives, and 25,000 residential buildings were destroyed.

There were 2,300 air attacks on Serbia. Eighteen kindergartens, 19 hospitals, 20 health centres, 44 bridges, 69 schools and 76 cultural monuments were destroyed,” the captions said, adding:

“Serbia will not forget 1999.”
