Brussels media in fear: "Kosovo Albanians planed attacks on both Belgium and France"
Back in October, these Kosovo Albanians were accused of plotting terrorist attacks on NATO soldiers in Kosovo, and on four Orthodox churches and two nightclubs in Serb enclaves
Locations in Belgium and France were also the targets of four Kosovo terrorists, who were convicted on Wednesday for planning attacks on NATO soldiers and Orthodox churches in Kosovo and Metohija, Brussels media report.
As the reports stress, of the three men and one woman two are Belgian citizens who have been convicted for their ties to Islamic State.
They are Bujar Behram (26) and Gramos Shabani (26), who have Belgian passports, as well as Resim Kastrati (26), and Edon Haliti (25).
Albert Ademaj and Leutrim Musliu have received lighter sentences because they knew of the plans of those convicted but did not alert the authorities.
Back in October, these Kosovo Albanians were accused of plotting terrorist attacks on NATO soldiers in Kosovo, and on four Orthodox churches and two nightclubs in the Serb enclave in Gracanica. As a weapon, they were planning to use explosives and bombs to blow themselves up.
According to The Brussels Times, the majority of Kosovo's 1.8 million inhabitants are Albanian Muslims. About 120,000 Serbs, Orthodox Christians, live in the divided city of Mitrovica and in a dozen enclaves.
The prosecutor said during the trial that plans to blow up Orthodox churches were the most advanced, but were prevented by the arrests.
About 300 Albanians from Kosovo have joined Islamic State in Syria and Iraq. About 70 have been killed, while 120 others are in prison.
