Previously, in April, also in Zubin Potok (Donji Jasenovik), a bomb was thrown into a courtyard, where several cars belonging the same family were located. On that occasion, six cars were damaged, as well as a nearby building belonging to a Serbian KP police officer. Also, in March, a car was set on fire in Strpce.
