  • [01] Three Albanian Children Wounded in Heavy Explosion in Rahovec Village on Sunday

    PRISHTINA, Feb 15 (KIC) - Three Albanian children were wounded in a heavy explosion that occurred yesterday (Sunday) around 11:00 CET in Kramovik village of Rahovec municipality, the local chapter of the Council for the Defense of Human Rights and Freedoms (CDHRF) said.

    Agim T. Kelmendi (12), Valdet L. Kelmendi (12) and Valdrin L.

    Kelmendi (6) were seriously wounded in the blast that is presumed to have been caused by a mine planted by Serbian forces in the village, namely on the doorstep of an Albanian house.

    Agim and Valdet were taken to the Gjakova hospital.

    Serbian police forces have been in the habit of opening fire during the night at Kramovik village, local sources said.

    [02] Premises of Three Faculties Handed over to the Albanian-run University of Prishtina

    The Serbian regime has done this hand-over today for merely tactical reasons, to demonstrate the alleged good will of Belgrade now that the Kosova conference at Rambouillet is under way, Abdyl Ramaj, a Kosova education official, told the KIC

    PRISHTINA, Feb 15 (KIC) - The buildings of three faculties and a college of higher education (the Faculty of Law, Faculty of Economics, and the Faculty of Arts, as well as the Teachers' Training College) were handed over to the Albanian-run University of Prishtina today noon in Prishtina.

    The Serbian regime illegally took over the then bilingual (80 percent Albanian, 20 percent Serbian) University of Prishtina in the autumn of 1991.

    In September 1996, President Ibrahim Rugova of Kosova and then Serbian President Milosevic signed an education agreement which has to this day not been implemented because of Serb regime's obstructionist policies.

    The Kosovar Albanian side does not see even today's hand-over as an implementation of the 1998 agreement and the March 1990 annex to the agreement, Abdyl Ramaj, a member of the Kosovar commission for the implementation of the agreement said. All of the faculties of the University of Prishtina and accessory premises should have been long ago made accessible to the Albanians, but they have not, he noted.

    The Serbian regime has not yet allowed Albanian students back to the buildings of the faculties of Medicine, Philology, Philosophy, Mathematical and Natural Sciences, Agriculture, Physical Culture.

    Mining and Metallurgy, as well as colleges of higher education in Prizren, Gjakova, Gjilan, Mitrovica, Ferizaj, and Peja, Mr. Abdyl Ramaj recalled.

    Other vital parts of the University campus - the University Library, the Students Center, the dormitories, the sports hall, as well as the students canteen still remain in the hands of the Serbs alone - as well as education- related institutions at the Kosovar level, the Kosova education official said.

    The Serbian regime has done this hand-over today for merely tactical reasons, to demonstrate the alleged good will of Belgrade now that the Kosova conference at Rambouillet is under way, Abdyl Ramaj told the KIC.

    [03] Seven Albanians Arrested in Podujeva, Fresh Serbian Forces Enter Kosova

    PRISHTINA, Feb 15 (KIC) - A highly volatile situation has been reported in the municipality of Podujeva today (Monday).

    LDK sources in Podujeva, 30 km north of Prishtina, said Serbian forces arrested today seven Albanian civilians, whose names have not been made known.

    Fresh Serbian forces arrived in Kosova today, passing through Podujeva, LDK sources said. A convoy consisting of two armored vehicles, twelve landrovers, and one minibus headed towards Prishtina at 9:30 CET. Later, another column involving two lorries and six other vehicles full of Serb policemen likewise headed to the Kosova capital.

    Just before noon, heavy Serbian police forces on board 5 landrovers and one lorry were stationed at the Besiana motel in Podujeva before heading to the Batllava area, in the municipality of Podujeva.

    [04] Serbian Army Troops Deployed Near P&r^ev& Village of Klina

    PRISHTINA, Feb 15 (KIC) - Serbian military troops moved today morning in the direction of the villages of Sferk&, P&r^ev& and Volljak&, municipality of Klina, LDK sources said. Serbian military helicopter gunships flew over the area today morning, they added.

    Heavy Serbian army troops have been deployed near the village of P&r^ev&, at a location called "Mrizi i P&r^ev&s", the LDK chapter said, adding that local Albanian resistance forces of the U^K are on the other side. There is a tense stand-off there, it added.

    Meanwhile, sources from Vushtrri municipality said the Albanian population of the villages of Novolan, Koll&, V&rnic&, Brusnik and Resnik have fled their homes, fearful of Serb massacres, in the aftermath of an announcement by the Serb military authorities that the Belgrade army will conduct exercises in the area.

    A convoy of Serbian forces consisting of 4 tanks, 4 vehicles trailing anti- aircraft weaponry, 5 lorries trailing heavy guns, and 6 APCs headed today morning towards the Bukosh village, where they were deployed eventually, local LDK sources said. Heavy Serbian police forces escorted the military convoy.

    Heavy paramilitary police forces, backed up by armored cars, have been deployed in the village of Bruznik, local sources said.

    [05] Two Albanians Kidnapped by Unidentified Persons in Ferizaj

    PRISHTINA, Feb 15 (KIC) - Unidentified persons with a car without license plates kidnapped Halil Hashanin (30), resident of Greme village and his companion, whose name has not yet been made known in the town of Ferizaj on Saturday evening, around 19:00 CET, local LDK sources in Ferizaj reported.

    The unknown persons speedily got out of their car and forced the two Albanians into it before driving away, the LDK chapter said.
