Protest in Kosovo against two Serbian boys being shot

Thousands of people gathered in Strpce, Kosovo, to protest against the attack on Stefan and Milos Stojanovic, two local Serbian boys, who were wounded on Friday when a local Albanian opened fire on them from a moving vehicle.

The protesters demand that the safety of Serb children in Kosovo and Metohija is ensured, with the Strpce Municipal Mayor, Dalibor Jevtic, saying that the incident represents a final warning, but that Serbs will persevere regardless of all the challenges they are facing.

The speakers at the protest also included Stojan Marinkovic, the principal of the school the young boy Stefan attended.

„We are sending a message that we believe in freedom and the right to life and that only in peace can we build a better future for all of us”, he said.

Another protest took place in Kosovska Mitrovica, where several hundred people gathered, wearing signs that accuse Serbian president, Aleksandar Vucic, and local Kosovo Serb politicians of treason, blackmail, torture and amassing wealth through illegal means.

Ivan Miletic, one of the organizers of the protest, addressed the protesters, saying that during the time barricades were put up everyone believed that Vucic would support Serbs, but that that did not happen.

He said the citizens gathered to send the message that they will not „put up with Kurti’s terror“.

„Nobody will put up with this anymore. We can’t do it anymore,“ said Miletic, as quoted by Kossev.

He called on Kurti and the international community to withdraw all Albanian policemen from the North and close the special unit bases.
