"They are conducting searches in the laundry room and certain offices at the hospital entrance. Without any knowledge of the hospital's management and administration, Dr. Dragisa Milovic and I, as the director, established contact with them, and they told us that they had a search warrant from the court. They are still within the hospital grounds, causing great distress among patients and staff," Elek reported.
As reported by Kosovo Online's correspondent, armored vehicles of the Kosovo Police Special Forces are also located near the Grey Café in North Mitrovica, which is situated just 10 meters from the "Danica Jaramaz" preschool institution.
