Serbia’s regular army and Gendarmerie have been deployed near the border crossings with Kosovo at Jarinje, in the northern part of Kosovo since the Sunday morning, Gazeta Express reported on Sunday citing Kosovapress news agency.
The troops have been allegedly deployed in Rudnica, which is only a few meters away from the Jarinje border crossings.
The Kosovapress news agency, quoting unnamed sources, reported that the Serbian Army and Gendarmerie were allegedly controlling passengers entering and leaving Kosovo.
“Serbian troops have not been seen near the border since Kosovo declared independence, and their presence has surprised Kosovo border police. The reasons for the deployment of the Serbian army near Kosovo border, remains unknown,” the source further say.
No official information on the deployment has arrived from Belgrade. Serbian Defence Minister Aleksandar Vulin, accompanied by the Chief of General Staff of the Serbian Armed Forces Ljubisa Dikovic and the Commander of the Land Army, Lieutenant General Milosav Simovic, visited the Dubinja airport near Sjenica, in the Pester highland, three days ago.
The airport is suspected of being contaminated with unexploded devices from the ‘99 war, and as the Army reported, there are ongoing technical works there.
