KFOR has tripled its forces in the north of Kosovo after the attack by local Serbs in Banjska, this mission announced.
The number of patrols, as they stated, has tripled, including those along the border line with Serbia.
“After the events of September 24, NATO deployed almost 1,000 additional soldiers as part of KFOR,” they stated from KFOR, reports “Kossev”.
KFOR says these are prudent steps to ensure they can continue to fulfill their mandate under UN Security Council Resolution 1244 of 1999 to ensure a safe environment for all people at all times and in an impartial manner. The NATO mission in Kosovo points out that the situation in the north of the Province is now calmer, but it is still fragile.
“We quadrupled the presence of KFOR in the north of Kosovo and tripled the number of patrols, including along the border line. KFOR maintains a flexible and agile position throughout Kosovo and is ready to respond to all possible scenarios, in accordance with its UN mandate,” they pointed out.
As they said, KFOR remains the third responding factor in the security service in Kosovo, after the Kosovo Police and EULEX.
“Our commander is in regular contact with everyone,” they added.
