Zelene Beretke (English, "Green Berets") was a paramilitary organization founded in Sarajevo in early 1992. They were integrated into a newly founded Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina in second part of 1992. The Green Berets as a gear of choice and name was selected both as a reference to United States Army Special Forces (although no actual relation existed) and as a common colour brand of the predominant ethnic group that composed the unit, namely Bosniaks. Bosnian Green Berets were mostly active during the war in the early part of 1992 in northern and central Bosnia.[1]
