According to information in the records of the Medžlis of the Islamic Community of Prijedor, the Gomjenica mosque was set on fire in mid-1992. The mosque’s interior was burned, but the roof was only partly damaged. Members of the congregation managed to put out the fire. This is said to be the only mosque in the Prijedor region that still had its roof at the end of the war. The Gomjenica mosque was reconstructed after the war, in 2002, at which point a new minaret was added.
