Velebit

 

a mountain range in the Dinararic Alps in Yugoslavia. The Velebit extends along the shore of the Adriatic Sea for approximately 150 km. Its maximum elevation is 1,758 m (at the city of Vaganjski-Vrh). The range is composed chiefly of limestone, and there is karst. The steep western slopes are treeless; the gentle eastern slopes are covered with broad-leaved forests up to an elevation of 1,300 m and coniferous forests at higher elevations.

When General Bobetko came to me with the proposal I took into account the Serb provocations--small provocations; for example, their entrance into the Velebit Range, where they killed some three special policemen, cutting off an ear of one, then the placing of mines at Pakrac, thereby creating a certain political climate both in the public and the parliament--so I accepted the proposal that we are going into this operation, although I was not informed, as I later found out, about all the elements.
