May 31, 2023

NATO will deploy another 700 troops to Kosovo after 30 Alliance peacekeepers and 52 protesters were injured in clashes with protesters on Monday.


According to Ukrinform, this was reported by the BBC.

When Serbian protesters in the north of Kosovo, where unrest continues, tried to get to the government building in Zveçan, clashes broke out between them and police and NATO troops.

After that, NATO issued a statement that 700 NATO troops would join the 3,800 already serving in Kosovo.

As a result, an additional reserve battalion will be created, which can be deployed within seven days if necessary.

According to officials, 30 soldiers were injured in Zvečan on Monday. The injuries include fractures and burns from improvised explosive devices. Three soldiers also sustained gunshot wounds.
