PRIŠTINA: The Kosovo police, KPS, have announced that five of their members were suspended over an incident that occurred on Monday in the town of Vitina.

They include the police station and operations chief, according to a statement. 

According to a Beta report, it was said that “despite announcements” from the directorate in Priština, they did not undertake the measures to prevent the tearing down of a monument. 

The memorial was dedicated to the fighters of the WW2 anti-fascist Partisan troops (NOV).
According to the news agency, “a group of about 100 citizens led by the president of the organization of veterans of the former KLA” yesterday attacked and brought down the memorial. 

The incident – filmed and posted on YouTube – was one in a series in Kosovo on Sunday and Monday, when ethnic Albanians targeted Serb cemeteries and memorial sites.

Serb cemeteries, memorials desecrated in Kosovo
====
Kosovska Mitorovica Mayor Krstimir Pantić criticized NATO troops, KFOR, who are deployed nearby, saying that the building was attacked on several other occasions and that, despite the fact the soldiers were standing several dozen meters away, the perpetrators have never been found and punished. 

A memorial in the Serb enclave in Goraždevac, raised to honor the victims of NATO’s 1999 bombing, and the Serb children gunned down while swimming in the Bistrica River in 2003, was also targeted.

KOSOVSKA MITROVICA: Incidents were reported from Kosovo on Sunday and Monday, including an attempt to stage an attack on a monastery, and desecration of several Serb cemeteries. 

In Kosovska Mitrovica, two firebombs were thrown at the municipal building, causing no injuries or material damages. The perpetrators “quickly escaped the scene”, while members of the Kosovo police, KPS, “arrived there shortly after the attack”, according to reports.

Pantić also announced that “as of tomorrow, the Civil Defense will take over the responsibility of securing personal and property safety of the citizens and the municipality”.
According to reports, ethnic Albanians in the town of Đakovica held a protest there and then headed for a nearby Serb Orthodox monastery…

The monastery was once before targeted by Albanians, when it was burned down in March 2004. The holy place has in the meantime been reconstructed. 

Meanwhile, 27 tombstones were destroyed in a Serb cemetery in Klokot. The Serbian Government Office for Kosovo and Metohija urged the international community representatives in Kosovo to find the “vandals” behind the incident as soon as possible. 

Three more Serb Orthodox cemeteries were desecrated in Kosovo overnight, in the villages of Prilužje, Miloševo and Plemetina. 

Beta news agency is reporting that explosives were used late on Sunday to blow up a tombstone on a cemetery plot belonging to a local Serb family in Prilužje. 

A memorial in the Serb enclave in Goraždevac, raised to honor the victims of NATO’s 1999 bombing, and the Serb children gunned down while swimming in the Bistrica River in 2003, was also targeted. 

In Vitina, a memorial for the members of the WW2 anti-fascist resistance (NOV), was also attacked. A video has surfaced on YouTube showing a crowd destroying the memorial, with several members of the KPS standing by without attempting to prevent them. 

Radio Goraždevac editor Darko Dimitrijević said that shots had been fired at the memorial, and that this disturbed some 1,000 Serbs who live in this village in Metohija. 

These incidents took place after a memorial built without a permit to honor members of the UCMPB (OVPMB) was removed from downtown Preševo, in southern Serbia. 

The now disbanded ethnic Albanian group was considered terrorist by the authorities for launching attacks against police, military and civilian targets in the area in 2000 and 2001.


The government in Priština called on “the citizens of Kosovo and Albanians in the Preševo valley” to express their dissatisfcation in a civilized manner, “without falling for the provocations of the Serbian government”.

“Desecrating cemeteries goes against civilization”

BELGRADE: Serbia’s Prime Minister Ivica Dačić condemned on Monday the desecration of Serb cemeteries and historical monuments in Kosovo.

He also stated that the international forces there were obligated to protect the Serbian cultural heritage.

He said the desecration of Serb cemeteries was an act that went against civilization. 

“I point out to the international forces and organizations in Kosovo that they are obligated to ensure peace and safety for all people, their property and cultural heritage,” Dačić stated. 

“The event in Preševo cannot be used as an excuse, because an illegally placed memorial to members of the Kosovo Liberation Army and the Liberation Army of Preševo, Bujanovac and Medveđa was peacefully removed from there,” Dačić remarked. 

“This is about vandalizing cemeteries and attacking churches and monasteries, which is something that has not and will not happen in southern Serbia,” the prime minister told Tanjug.
