Kosovo Parliament has on Thursday evening approved a resolution condemning Serbia’s genocide in Kosovo war in 1998-1999.
Chairman of an ad-hoc parliamentarian committee, Bilall Sherifi, has presented before MPs the amended Resolution after new suggestions proposed by some of the MPs. He said that after a long debate they have managed to incorporate the proposed suggestions by some of MPs. Sherifi read the resolution which blames Serbia of committing war crimes and genocide during 1998-1999 war in Kosovo which left more than 13,000 people dead and more than 1600 are still considered as missing. “This Resolution came twenty years after Serbia committed war crimes in Kosovo, aimed at exterminating Albanians and expelling around one million people from their homes, and killing around 13 thousand unarmed civilians of all ethnicities, but majority of them were Albanians,” Sherifi said.
In the resolution are mentioned more than 100 locations where Serbian forces have committed massacres during the war. “In 1999 Serbian forces have committee over 100 massacres in Kosovo and in some of the locations they have burned people alive such as in Breznik, Mitrovica, Podujeva, Bellacerka, Randobrave, Krushe er Vogel, Krushe e Madhe, Gjakovë, Matiqan, Izbicë, Llashticë e Gjilanit, Rrezallë, Sherifi said. “During the Kosovo war in 1998-1999 around 20 thousand women were exposed to sexual violence. And during these two years over one million people were expelled from their homes,” Sherifi concluded. /GazetaExpress/
