The indictment was issued against eight former members of the Training Center Jahorina from the Special Brigade of the Ministry of Interior of the Serb Republic (RS) - the Serb entity in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
The accused are charged with killing several hundreds persons of Muslim nationality in the Kravica hangar on July 14, 1995, the prosecution specified in a statement on Thursday.
The indictment covers Nedeljko Milidargovic, Aleksa Golijanin, Milivoje Batinic, Aleksandar Dacevic, Bora Miletic, Jovan Petrovic, Dragomir Parovic, and Vidosav Vasic.
They are charged with organizing and participating in the execution as co-perpetrators.
Among the victims killed in the Kravica hangar so far more than 1,300 Muslim civilians have been identified, whose remains were found in mass graves Glogova 1 and 2 and Ravnice, as well as in several secondary graves.
This case is an example of exceptional regional cooperation between the War Crimes Prosecution and the Prosecution of Bosnia-Herzegovina, stressed the statement.
War Crimes Prosecutor Vladimir Vukcevic said this indictment "shows the stance of Serbia toward the biggest war crime committed in Europe since World War II" and that "no victim and no war criminal will not be forgotten."
"The case 'Srebrenica - Kravice' is an example of exceptional regional cooperation of the War Crimes Prosecution and the Prosecution of Bosnia-Herzegovina, in cooperation with the Serbian Ministry of Interior and the police in Bosnia-Herzegovina," he told Tanjug.
