The Kostrići massacre (Croatian: pokolj u Kostrićima) was the killing 16 Croat civilians in the village of Kostrići, near Hrvatska Kostajnica by Serb paramilitary unit "Kaline Komogovina" on 15 November 1991 during the Croatian War of Independence. Among those killed were two children. The oldest victim was 93 years old.
The Serb paramilitary unit of "Kaline Komogovina", which was led by Stevo Borojević "Gadafi", entered the village from two directions, from Hrvatska Kostajnica and Majur. In one house they found a young woman with two children (aged two and four), whom they asked for her husband, Zlatko Jurić. After being told that he had gone to the neighbouring village Stubalj, the three were killed. The husband reported the crime to Milan Martić's militia (the police force of SAO Krajina) in Kostajnica, and was then killed. The village was looted and burned. Only seven victims were identified. Some victims were found after the war in burned and destroyed homes.
In 2011 a monument to the victims, with names inscribed, was unvelied in the village.
