Probe launched into torching of Serbian flag in Kosovo

November 14, 2023

The Kosovo Police confirmed that the Serbian flag at the monument to the killed and kidnapped Serbs in Velika Hoca, municipality of Orahovac, has been burnt and that an investigation is underway.

In its regular daily report, the Kosovo Police said that police officers went to the scene and that the prosecutor has been informed about the incident, the Serbian state TV (RTS) reported.

The torching of the Serbian flag is an “act of madness by the Albanian extremists who have been setting fire to everything Serbian for years in an attempt to discourage the Serbs and break the spirit of the Serb people resisting all attacks and challenges, whatever they may be,” said the Serbian Government’s Office for Kosovo and Metohija (Kosovo and Metohija is the official name for what the Serbian authorities consider to be the country’s southern province).

The Office called on international representatives and missions in Kosovo to visit the monument in Velika Hoca and send out a clear message that such ethnic incidents and attacks on the Serbs’ existence in Kosovo are impermissible.
