Serb cemetery in Kisnica near Gracanica in Kosovo and Metohija desecrated: Seven tombstones broken

It seems that it is not enough to openly demonstrate religious intolerance against the Serb people living in Kosovo and Metohija, but Albanian hooligans won't even let the deceased Serbs rest in peace - the Office for Kosovo and Metohija said in a statement

Seven tombstones were broken in the Orthodox cemetery in Kisnica near Gracanica. According to Snezana Jovanovic, six tombstones were completely destroyed and two more were damaged.

"A week ago, all the tombstones were intact. Then one of the locals visited the cemetery and saw that a new fence had been erected. We were pleased with that, and I have photos from that point. So that (the desecration) happened during the last week. I cannot believe it. I am sad and I am simply wondering who is bothered by the dead," Jovanovic told a local portal and added that this cemetery near Gracanica was the target for the first time since 1999.

The case was reported to the police of so-called Kosovo.

The Office for Kosovo and Metohija reacted to the desecration of the cemetery by stressing that the damaging of eight Serb tombstones in the ethnically mixed village of Kisnica, near Gracanica is disgraceful and devastating.

 

Office for Kosovo and Metohija: Albanian hooligans won't even let deceased Serbs rest in peace

The desecration of eight Serb tombstones that were broken in the Orthodox cemetery in the ethnically mixed village of Kisnica, near Gracanica is disgraceful and devastating; six were completely destroyed and two were damaged, the Serbian Government's Office for Kosovo and Metohija said.

This mindless act was discovered by the locals who testified that the tombstones were intact only seven days ago, and they reported this case to the Kosovo police, the statement said.

"It seems that it is not enough to openly demonstrate religious intolerance against the Serb people living in Kosovo and Metohija, but Albanian hooligans won't even let the deceased Serbs rest in peace. During that time, politicians from Pristina, led by the most outspoken advocate of anti-Serb policy, Albin Kurti, are declaring that Kosovo and Metohija is an oasis of peace and harmony, while we witness ethnically motivated attacks and incidents against Serbs every day," the statement said.

The statistics are devastating, showing that "50 percent more ethnically motivated incidents have been recorded in Kosovo and Metohija this year compared the the previous one, of which as many as 20 were attacks against the property of the Serbian Orthodox Church."

"The fact that these numbers continue to grow and that there is no adequate reaction and protection of the Serb population is additionally worrying. During this year alone, the Office for Kosovo and Metohija informed international representatives about the threat to SPC monuments and Serbian Orthodox cemeteries in Kosovo and Metohija, and this year the Office invested significant funds in rehabilitation, repair and maintenance of Orthodox cemeteries and chapels in Kosovo and Metohija, and will continue to rebuild what has been destroyed in response to the policy of hatred and intolerance," said the Office for Kosovo and Metohija.
