One of the returnees, Veljko Komatović, told Radio Television of Serbia (RTS) that the attackers fired at the Serb returnees’ houses while a Kosovo police patrol was there.
Komatović said that the shooting followed after a group of people threw rocks at the Drljević family’s house. The incident was reported to the police and the Kosovo police were there to investigate it.
“While the police were investigating, shots were heard from the nearby meadows around 20:00 CET,” he added.
According to the witness, the police searched the area the shots came from and KFOR troops arrived soon after.
Around 13 returnee families live in the village of Žač and they are constantly attacked and intimidated. The last attack took place in early August when unknown persons fired from automatic weapons at the Serbs’ homes. Nobody was injured in the incident.
