The Office for Kosovo and Metohija has announced that a hand grenade was placed in the yard of Ivica Djuzic's family home in the village of Mogila near Vitina. It was only by sheer luck that no serious consequences occurred, continuing the persecution and intimidation of the Serbian people by the regime of Kosovo's Prime Minister Albin Kurti.

The statement mentions that the Djuzic family has been targeted by local Albanians for some time. Early last year, Ivica's son, Boban Djuzic, was attacked and stabbed by a group of Albanian youths, and now they have come under a new attack.

"This is a new intimidation and pressure on the Serbs to leave their homes, in order to fulfill the dream of the creator of their persecution, Albin Kurti, to ethnically cleanse the territory of Kosovo and Metohija. However, the Djuzic family continues to withstand all attacks and remains determined to stay on their land," the Office states.

They add that Belgrade insists on protecting the Serbian people and calls on the institutions that have the mandate to ensure the safety of Serbs in Kosovo to increase vigilance on the ground and for the competent authorities to prosecute those responsible for ethnically motivated attacks on Serbs.

"The Serbian people in Kosovo and Metohija have survived more severe trials in history than the instructed provocations of Albin Kurti, and will persist on their ancestral hearths even after his tyranny and terror," concludes the statement from the Office for Kosovo and Metohija.
