During the 1992–95 Bosnian War, the village was badly damaged in the 1993 attack, and in 1995 was the place of major killings during the Srebrenica massacre.

History

In 1971 there was a shootout between men from Kravica and men from Konjević Polje.[2]

In 1991, it was reported that neighbouring Serb-inhabited Kravica and Bosniak-inhabited Glogova "had bad blood".[3]

Bosnian War

The village was attacked on 7 January (Serb Orthodox Christmas) 1993 by ARBiH forces under Naser Orić from the besieged Srebrenica enclave under the control of the ARBiH. 46 people died in the attack on the Serb side: 35 VRS soldiers and 11 civilians, and most of the houses were damaged.[4][5][6][page needed] Men from Kravica participated in the Srebrenica genocide committed against Bosniak civilians and prisoners of war.[7]
