Kosovo: Serbia puts troops on high alert over rising tensions !

Recommended Posts

The Serbian army says it is at its "highest level of combat readiness" after weeks of escalating tensions between Serbia and Kosovo.

President Aleksandar Vucic says he will "take all measures to protect our people and preserve Serbia".

The sabre-rattling is louder than ever and follows media claims that Pristina is preparing "an attack" on ethnic Serb areas in north Kosovo.

The government in Pristina has made no comment about the allegations.

But it has previously accused Mr Vucic of playing "games" to stir up trouble.

The European Union has been attempting to mediate.

Serbia placed combat-ready troops along its border with Kosovo as tensions soar and long-simmering ethnic divisions resurface.

Serbia's Interior Minister Bratislav Gasic said Monday he "ordered the full combat readiness" of the troops on the border after he was instructed to do so by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.

The order was issued to ensure that "all measures be taken to protect the Serbian people in Kosovo."
