Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti claimed that a Serbian-backed group of “heavily armed” men had attacked the police, killing one and wounding two, before surrounding a monastery in the northern Banjska/Banjske area.
A Kosovo Police officer was killed, another was wounded, and a third was injured in an attack by organized and armed groups in a village in the north of Kosovo, according to the Kosovo Police.
Automatic weapons, ammunition, hand grenades, and NATO-caliber explosives and firearms were discovered by Kosovo authorities in Zveçan during a police operation.
After three Kosovo Serb police officers resigned – only one month after taking their oath – President says likely reason was Serbian government's intimidation.
Kosovo institutions and international representatives have condemned the threatening messages directed at new members of the Kosovo Police from the Serbian community who recently began their duties in the northern part of the country.
