With the exception of a case of bomb-throwing and setting fire to a bar in Zvečan earlier this month, as well as at least one torched car during the October 2021 riots in the north, at least 84 vehicles have been set on fire since 2014 in Serb-inhabited areas, primarily in the north.

The last case of arson occurred on March 17 in Leposavic, and February 29 in Zvečan.

At the beginning of February, another car was set on fire in Zvečan. At the end of January, a vehicle owned by the president of the Leposavic municipal assembly was partially torched, and in the middle of February last year, a car belonging to the municipal vice president, an ethnic Serb woman, D.M., was set on fire in the same place.

On the other hand, the last series of car arson in the north took place in April of last year, when more than 10 passenger vehicles were torched in a week.
