Original Message Blood in the Balkans: Albanian Kosovo Police Invades Serbian-Controlled Municipalities to Depose Elected Mayors – Serbian Citizens React Violently – NATO Peacekeepers Clash With Protesters

Tensions are flaring again between Serbs and Albanians in Kosovo.

Albanian Kosovo police entered Serb majority towns in the north of the separatist region, broke through the barricades erected by the Serb population, and after fierce clashes with citizens, occupied the mayor office in the towns, preparing to replace the duly elected Serbian mayors with Albanian-backed ones.

As the Serb population converged upon these places, KFOR peacekeepers from NATO have created a buffer zone in these places, protecting the Kosovo police in the invaded buildings.

On Friday (May 28th), Albanian armored vehicles were sighted in Kosovska Mitrovica, Leposavić, and Zubin Potok, forming convoys.

Kosovo forces attempted to enter government buildings in Serb-majority towns and cities of unrecognized Kosovo, prompting furious reaction from locals who come out in force against police intrusion.

Clashes between members of the Kosovo special forces and Serbian officers of community self-government bodies took place in the north of Kosovo – special forces used stun grenades.

Kosovo police finally managed to disperse Serb protesters who have gathered in front of city halls to prevent Albanian officials from entering.

Albanian Kosovo’s ROSU forces seize municipalities from Serbian control with casualties, and Kosovo police clash with protesting Serbs, using tear gas and stun grenades.

After the Kosovo security forces stormed the administration building of the municipality of Zubin Potok, the Albanians removed the Serbian flag and hoisted the symbol of the self-proclaimed Republic of Kosovo.

Gunfire on the streets as Kosovo police clashed with protesters also in town of Zvecan.

Serbian Defense Minister Milos Vucevic stated that Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic had signed the order to increase combat readiness and added that the situation in Kosovo and Metohija was dramatic.
