Jakovljević is a member of Leposavić Municipal Council and a head of Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) town board.
Jakovljević’s car was damaged in the blast and windows on the house were broken.
He told Beta news agency that he did not know what the motive for the attack was but stressed that he was not afraid.
“We will not react to provocations, we are not scared and we are going to take all measures in order to prevent all kinds of violence in northern Kosovo and Metohija, which is organized,” Jakovljević noted and called on KFOR, EULEX and Serbia to find and punish the perpetrators.
According to him, the “ultimate goal of those who are trying to destabilize the situation in the north is to expel the Serbian and other non-Albanian population”.
Kosovska Mitrovica District Head Radenko Nedeljković has condemned the attack and assessed that it was a part of a coordinated operation aimed at destabilizing northern Kosovo, causing chaos and divisions among citizens so the north could be easily integrated in the Kosovo system.
He requested a comprehensive investigation “because this is the only way to avoid politicization of this and previous incidents”.
This is the third attack in the last two days in Kosovo. A hand grenade was thrown at Kosovska Mitrovica Health Center Director Milan Jakovljević’s house in Zvečan on Tuesday night and a bomb was planted under Kosovo police member Radovan Jovanović’s car in Leposavić.
