PATRIOTIC LEAUGE  PATRIOSKA LIGA

Patriotska liga je prva oružana sila u Bosni nastala nakon raspada Teritorijalne obrane Bosne i Hercegovine. 19.12. 1990. godine Alija Izetbegović i njegova stranka donose odluku o osnivanju oružanih snaga. Početkom 1991. pod komandom Sefera Halilovića osnovana je Patriotska liga Bosne i Hercegovine sa istom teritorijalnom organizacijom kao i TO (teritorijalna obrana). Obuka pripadnika je vršna u Centrima za obuku specijalne policije Republike Hrvatske i do početka 1992. imala je oko 98000 pripadnika organiziranih u 9 regija i 103 distrikta (od 109 u BiH).

The Patriotic League was the first military unit of  Bosnia formed after the Bosnian Teritorial Defence Forces were gained by the SDS party. On December 19th 1990 Alija Izetbegović and the SDA party decide to form armed forces. In March 1991 Sefer Halilović formed the Patriotic League (Patriotska Liga - PL) as an independent Bosnian army, with the same territorial organization as the TO.

7. muslimanska brigada je bila brigada u sastavu Armije BiH. Često je, u hrvatskim i srpskim javnim medijima zamjenjivana za samostalnu brigadu El Mudžahid, sastavljenu od boraca iz raznih islamskih zemalja, koja je također bila u sastavu 3. korpusa. 7. brigada je imala oko 1000 lokalnih boraca.

The 7th Muslim Brigade was a brigade in the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (ARBiH). It was often misinterpreted by Serb and Croat media, which confused it with the squad of  Arab volunteers known as El-Mudžahid - foreign fighters from various Islamic countries that fought during the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia. The 7th brigade had over 1,000 local soldiers and was a part of the 3rd corps of the Bosnian Army. The El-Mudžahid was an independent detachment.
