In Jagnjenica, the recent scene of fierce clashes between Serbian demonstrators and KFOR remained tense yesterday. KFOR, since then, is surrounded by new barricades on all three sides. Serbs have strengthened and paved the barricade at “Kershi i Dudit”, and the bridge near Zvecan, which can now only be removed by blasting the bridge, reported sources. The commander of the German-Austrian battalion Lieutenant Colonel Franz Pirker warned of the possibility of a new escalation of violence.
Mitrovica, Kosovo – Friday, December 2, 2011 / The Independent NewsweeK
Representatives of Serbs from northern Kosovo met with the local commander of KFOR, Lieutenant Darius Nobbs, and agreed yesterday (December 1) to go together to Jagnjenica, in order to arrange a peaceful settlement, said the mayor of Zvecan Dragisa Milovic.
“We agreed that in Jagnjenica Lieutenant Nobbs, along with the mayor of Zubin Potok, Slavisa Ristic, would visit the site and see the real situation on the ground and try to find a peaceful solution,” said Milovic to the Beta agency.
Milovic said that there is no doubt that KFOR prevents the smuggling of weapons, but that it is unacceptable that the main road to Zubin Potok is blocked. Dozens of people were injured on Monday when the Serbs clashed with KFOR soldiers in Jagnjenica because KFOR removed the barricade.
