On the second day of protests in northern Kosovo, a relative calm prevailed among the demonstrators, but incidents targeting journalists and media vehicles occurred. In response to the escalating situation, NATO has decided to deploy additional forces to its Kosovo Force.
In the four municipalities of Northern Kosovo, thousands of Serbs are protesting against the new Albanian mayors in these municipalities. Protesters have attempted to break through the police and KFOR cordon, and the police have used spray.
In a joint statement, the QUINT countries have urged the Government of Kosovo not to take any new measures to access municipal buildings in Leposavic, Zubin Potok, and Zvecan. The statement warns that new unilateral actions will negatively impact relations with the QUINT countries and the EU.
