  • [01] Serb forces continue military actions in Drenice

    PRISHTINE, March 8 (ATA)- ATA correspondent Belul Jashari reports from Prishtine that military actions continued in Drenice also last night.

    Serb forces did not stop neither machinegun fire in Vojnik nor volleys of other weapons' shots, although sporadic, in Llaushe and Prekaz.

    Serbian snipers around Llaushe yesterday killed two Albanians, as they are placed at positions covering a large area and shoot at people moving.

    The latest reports from the Council for the Defence of Human Rights say that 34 Albanians, killed in the latest assaults of the Serb forces in Drenice since March 4, have been identified. The Albanians' death toll is twice higher and more.

    The night in Skenderaj was a little calmer. But in this town, as told by telephone from locals, two trucks carrying the first humanitarian aid for the people of Drenice were seized and sent to a Serb settlement, last night.

    The atmosphere of war is also reflected in the capital of Kosova, Prishtine, where the streets last night were free of inhabitants and under a tight control of Serbian armed forces. The city's calm is broken by sporadic shots. /lm/

    [02] Prekaz again in flames

    PRISHTINE, March 8 (ATA)-ATA correspondent Belul Jashari reports from Prishtine that large areas of Drenice continue to be under the fire of the Serb military-police and pre-military forces.

    The flames of war are engulfing Prekaz. Grenades thrown from the Hunting Ammunition Factory yard in Skenderaj set this village on fire. Llaushe and several other villages continue to be targets of the Serb snipers.

    The Council for the Defence of Human Rights in Kosova provides fresh evidence of the killed. According to this testimony seven other killed Albanian children, aged 7-15, have been seen in Prekaz.

    Sources of the council say that in the villages of Llaushe, Vojnik, Kopilic, Acare and other villages, local Albanians continue organised resistance in defence against Serb attacks.

    Serb forces do not allow humanitarian aid and reporters in these areas. There is a shortage of food and medicine, especially in places settled by the war refugees.

    Tensions and risks are running high also in other parts of Kosova. Reports from Gjakova say that Serb military and police forces' reinforcements continued today along the border line with Albania. Special teams of these forces have been filming the terrain, reports say.

    A group of diplomats, accredited to Belgrade, are reported to have gone to Skenderaj to familiarize themselves with the damages and destructions caused to this zone. /fh/das/lm
