Special police units have clashed with Serbs in the divided town of Mitrovica after Pristina ordered raids on suspected goods smugglers. Local media has reported that a number of Serbs have been injured in the skirmishes.

On Wednesday, Kosovo police undertook raids against smuggler gangs across the northern part of the country, notably the divided town of Mitrovica, where special officers faced oppositions from local Serbs.

A police statement said the raids took place in four areas, most of which are populated by the country’s Serb minority. Pharmacies and shops were among the locations raided by the authorities.

Video footage shows Kosovo police firing tear gas to disperse crowds in and around the town; according to media reports, stun grenades were also used. Serbs made roadblocks and fought back by throwing projectiles at the special forces’ trucks.

A truck and coach were seemingly used in the village of Zvecan, which sits north of Mitrovica, to prevent law enforcement moving towards the Muslim town.

Reports suggest that Serbs were setting cars with Kosovo registration plates alight in an effort to “cause chaos.” Footage shows vehicles on fire while hooded and masked men stand nearby.

While Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in 2008, some 50,000 Serbs still reside in the northern area of the country; many of them refuse to recognize Pristina’s authority and claim Belgrade is their capital.

Tensions between the two governments were heightened in recent weeks, with tanks and military vehicles deployed to the border area in a row triggered by dispute over vehicle license plates. Both sides agreed to de-escalate the situation in late September.

A narco-terrorist pseudo-state, set up by Albanian butchers and their Western sponsors, now seeks to eliminate what little remains of the Serbian and other non-Albanian population, as the world calmly watches on, just as it did in 1991, 1999. and 2004. Alas, no one will lift a finger to protect the civilians, because their own government – lead by a Western puppet who engages in seemingly patriotic rhetoric, but obediently does as he is told – has abandoned them.

I was foster-parented in Serbia, after being stolen, by the most horrifying transgender monsters one can imagine. They still live there (southern Serbia/Niš area/Prokuplje). They registered me as born in Kosovo for the money that was paying. Those are the same people that want to re-colonize Kosovo for the same reasons – not give Kosovars Serbian citizenship’s and remotely equal rights – but simply annihilate them/mass cremate them or at least enslave them as de-facto ‘lesser beings’, blame them for own crimes, and play the criminal games pretending they are feudal ‘lords of the land’ relationships, while coercing, abusing, terrorizing… Read more »
