PRISHTINA, Oct 7 (KIC) - A convoy of 40 Serb military tanks entered Kosova from Serbia today (Wednesday), LDK sources in Podujeva said, adding that the convoy headed in the direction of capital Prishtina.
The LDK chapter said some Serb forces have indeed moved out of Kosova to Serbia, but this has not been of a considerable level.
In these two locations, Serbs have camouflaged heavy guns, anti- aircraft missiles, tanks, lorries and rockets.
Early in the morning today (Wednesday), Serb forces conducted military exercises in Gazimestan. Heavy shooting and detonations were heard, local sources said.
The local chapter in Skenderaj of the Prishtina-based Council for the Defense of Human Rights and Freedoms (CDHRF) said Serb forces continue to remain in their positions in Likoc, Mak&rmal, Rezall&, A^arev&, Morin&, Polac, Llaush&, etc.
These Serb forces are equipped with heavy combat equipment and held the Albanian villages at gunpoint, thus making it impossible for refugees to return back to their homes.
Yesterday, there was sporadic shooting and Serb shelling in the direction of the villages of Likoc, Mak&rmal, Rezall&, Polluzh& and A^arev&s. Likewise yesterday, the burning of Albanian houses that survived earlier onslaughts was continuing in the villages of Likoc, Mak&rmal and Polluzh&.
Considerable Serb arsenal, including tanks and armored cars, are dug in in the village of Semaj&, municipality of Ka^anik. They have been camouflaged, sources said, adding that these very forces have Looted and raided many deserted Albanian houses and ill-treated many residents who have remained behind in the village.
Heavy Serb forces are reported stationed near the village of Kashtanjev& and several other locations in the municipality of Sht&rpc&, which have been hidden and camOuflaged in the wooded area of this small municipality in south-eastern Kosova.
The KIC sources have been unable to obtain information on the fate of some 1,000 Albanian residents of the village of Jezerc, who have presumably been living somewhere rough in the open, in gullies and hills, without food and clothing.
No domestic or international organization is known to have sought access or assisted the unprotected people there in the wake of the Serb onslaught ten days ago.
In the past few days, Serb military repositioned in the ^abrati hill near Gjakova, as well as in the hills of the Qerim village.
Seven Serb policemen raided the LDK chapter's offices in Gjakova yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon, the chapter said.
The police questioned the four activists who happened to be in the room for 40 minutes and left.
These villages were attacked by Serb forces on Monday afternoon and evening too. Damage was reported caused in many farmhouses there.
LDK activists in Malisheva described the situation in the area highly critical.
Serb forces have not withdrawn, but rather changed positions and in camouflaged sites. At a location called "Baraka", Serb forces have built huts where from they hold the outlying village under a watchful eye. Serb army jets flew overhead the area on several occasions today, they said.
PRISHTINA, Oct 7 (KIC) - LDK sources in Malisheva said today the dead bodies of 6 other Albanians were found on Tuesday in forests near Pllo^ica village.
The mutilated bodies of Ajet Maloku (49) and Bajram Gashi (25) were found in the woods not far from the village of Pllo^ica.
The two men had gone missing a couple of weeks ago.
In another forest between Pllo^ica and the neighboring village of Rixheva the bodies of four other Albanians were laying on the ground: Pajaz Veselaj, Bali Veselaj (65) and his son whose name was not reported, and Remzi Veselaj (41).
Local activists said they fear other dead bodies may be scattered in the hills and forests in the area around Pllo^ica and Rixheva.
It is impossible to search the area thoroughly as it is being held at gunpoint of Serb snipers positioned near the Vulljaka bauxite mines.
Only two days ago, the bodies of five other Albanians were found in the hills near Pllo^ica village. Local villagers named four of them as Ahmet Maloku, Hazir Maloku, Kajtaz Maloku, and Rizah Maloku, while the identity of the fifth one, cut in half, could not be established.
At least 12 Albanians were executed by Serbs in the Pllo^ica village ten days ago, only a day before the horrendous massacre against 18 civilians in the neighboring village of Obria e Ep&rme occurred.
The LDK Information Commission in Malisheva said today afternoon that the body of another Albanian, Sherif Hoti (60), was found today in the vineyards at Carralluk village. His body was reportedly decomposed, and his identity could only be established based on his clothes.
Sherif Hoti was considered missing for quite a long time, the source said.
On Tuesday, the body of another village of Budakova Mursel Buqaj (60) was found near a barn in his farmhouse. His body was mutilated, local sources said.
The LDK chapter in Suhareka said the situation in the area continues to be very grave and dangerous. Several villages are still being held inside a virtual siege by Serb troops who are caution against having themselves seen near the bigger roads.
At least 108 Albanians from Suhareka and surrounding village are being held in a Serb jail in Prizren.
Serb forces have been garrisoned in four locations in the area - ^akorr, Lic, Vra^ev& and Qafa e Hajles (Hajla Pass) - and have completely cut supply routs for local population.
LDK sources in Peja said Serb and Montenegrin forces have cracked down on several hamlets in the Rugova region.
Scores of Albanian have been reported maltreated in Shtupe^ i Madh, who had also their cottages burned.
