The Mostar Operation was a series of Yugoslav Partisan military operations in Herzegovina from February 6–15, 1945.
Partisans took Široki Brijeg on February 6. They took Mostar without resistance on February 14. Upon entering the city, the Partisans took seven Franciscans, including the head of the Franciscan Province Leo Petrović, from the Church of Saint Peter and Paul and executed them. Their bodies were subsequently dumped into the Neretva river.
