The information was released by the Director of the Kosovo and Metojia Office of the Government of Serbia, Petar Petkoviv, who added that the incident took place near an illegal checkpoint on the highway between Kosovska Mitrovica and Leposaviq against a car in which two were People.
Belgrade authorities said Pristina built bases and checkpoints in northern Kosovo, in violation of the 2013 Brussels deal to normalize relations between the two parties.
On January 6, in a similar incident, two Serbs, including an 11-year-old boy, were injured when they were shot from a moving car.
In November 2022, a conflict sparked by the Kosovars’ refusal to accept number plates for cars of Serbian origin again threatened stability in the region.
Kosovo declared its independence from Serbia in 2008, but is not recognized by either the government in Belgrade or most member countries of the United Nations.
