DRAGO PILSEL: Can a Serb be a Croatian martyr: The first victim of the Homeland War is not Josip Jovic but Goran Alavanja

Josip Jovic died on March 31, 1991 during a “Plitvice” action when special members of the Croatian MUP re-established a police station in Plitvice Lakes, taken a few days earlier by the members of the rebel forces. In clashes with paramilitary Serb forces, another nine members of the Special Police were wounded. If the war began with the attack of Serbian terrorists on the Croatian police, then the Homeland War began at two o’clock in the afternoon, on October 17, 1990, when Martic’s forces were shot at the police patrol of Benkovac police near Obrovac. They knew exactly that the policemen in the patrol vehicle were Serbs. And that’s why this attack is very significant. One of them, Croatian policeman Goran Alanja, a 22-year-old man from the village of Donji Karin, who was killed, received six bullets in his chest.
