Tensions in North Kosovo continue – KFOR boosts its presence

This morning, the Kosovo police threw tear gas at the employees of the municipality of Zvečan who tried to enter the building several times.

As reported by the Serbian Broadcasting Corporation (RTS), the employees tried on several occasions to break through the cordon of special units of the Kosovo police stationed in front of the building’s entrance.

KFOR soldiers had previously allowed municipal workers to enter the municipal building. KFOR has been deployed in front of the municipal building since this morning, armed, carrying equipment to break up demonstrations.

Representatives of the political party Serbian List, Goran Rakić, Igor Simić and Dragiša Milović, arrived in front of the building and are currently talking to representatives of the Kosovo police.

On Friday, after the Kosovo police prevented Serbs from entering the municipal premises in Zvečan, Zubin Potok and Leposavic, street clashes occurred, during which the police used tear gas and shock bombs.

Several Serbs were injured, he Kosovo police entered the municipal buildings and brought in the Albanian mayors, who won the recently held elections, in which a total of 3.4 percent of voters turned out.

The elections, which were boycotted by Serbian political representatives in Kosovo and Metohija, were organized by Kosovo authorities in late April, after the Serbs walked out on their jobs in the Kosovo institutions in November last year.
