Operation Dinara

This was an Axis plan for a series of operations against the partisan forces of Josip Broz Tito agreed by Croat, German and Italian commanders at a meeting held in Zagreb (19 September 1942).

The primary figures at this meeting were Generale d’Armata Mario Roatta, commander of the Italian 2nd Army, and Poglavnik Ante Pavelić, head of the Croat government and leader of the Ustaše movement.

The plan envisaged the ‘Alfa’ Italian and Četnik attack on Prozor, the ‘Beta’ (ii) Italian and Ustaše attack on Livno, the later-cancelled ‘Gamma’ (i) attack on Glamoc, and the ‘Jajce I’ and ‘Jajce II’ German, Croat and Četnik attacks on the area of Jajce.
