Turkey's foreign minister on Monday commemorated the late Hatidza Mehmedovic, an activist who fought for justice for victims of the 1995 Srebrenica genocide. 

Mehmedovic, head of the Mothers of Srebrenica Association, died in the capital Sarajevo on Sunday. She was 66.

“We will always remember her as someone who sought justice for the victims of Srebrenica,” Mevlut Cavusoglu posted on Twitter. 

“Her cause will continue forever,” Cavusoglu added. 

Mehmedovic died at a clinic while receiving treatment for cancer. She will be buried in her hometown of Srebrenica on Wednesday. 

After losing her husband and two sons in the genocide, Mehmedovic dedicated her life to raising awareness of the genocide and became a symbol of resistance.

“I will be a mother no more,” she said in the wake of the genocide.

“I will not be able to have grandchildren. I will not be able to have a son, and I will no longer know what all of this happiness means.”
