Unknown in the night to Tuesday once again broke the glass in the Serbian part of the school in municipalitatea Lipljan in Kosovo and Metohija, Radio and television of Kosovo (RTK).

Attacks on Kosovo Serbs and their property in the self-proclaimed Republic of Kosovo have increased in recent months. School «brac Axis» in the village Rabovce divided into Serbian and Albanian part. The Serbian half has already been attacked in July 2017, when there was a fire, and in August of the same year, when it was broken glass in the Windows. In the night of Tuesday unknown again broke all the glass in the Serbian classes.

«We all thought that such scenes will be less, but again they are repeated. A month and a half ago there was a similar incident in the village of suvi Dol, and now again in Rabovce, where stones are pelted only the Serbian part, and we all know it is a multiethnic school», — quotes the channel of the mayor of the Serbian enclave of Gracanica, Srdjan Popovic.

According to him, such incidents send a «clear signal to the Serbs that their education in Kosovo will not stand». Popovich called police of the breakaway Republic to find the perpetrators of this and previous attacks.

In 1999, armed confrontation between the Albanian separatists of the Kosovo Liberation army and the army and police of Serbia led to the bombing of Yugoslavia (then consisting of Serbia and Montenegro) NATO forces. In March 2004, Kosovo Albanians staged riots, which led to mass resettlement of Serbs from the province and the destruction of numerous monuments of their history and culture.

The remaining approximately 120 thousand Serbs live in compact settlements on the North of the province and in several enclaves in the South. In 2008, the Albanian administrative structure in Pristina unilaterally proclaimed the independence of the «Republic of Kosovo» from the authorities in Belgrade. The leadership of the Republic, which is not recognized by Russia, Serbia, Greece, Iran, Israel, Spain and a number of other countries, seeks to join international organizations and the European Union.
