There exist numerous definitions of terrorism, but it is a fact that terrorism becomes a global threat, therefore all states, both big and small ones, may become victims of terrorist activities. However, in practice, terrorism is easily recognized, and, for the understanding of the substance of terrorism, there is a most appropriate definition presented by The American Terrorism Research Center:

"Terrorism is the illegal use of power or of violence against people and property, in order to scare or repulse a Government, civilian population, or a part of it, in order to achieve political or social objectives." (The FBI definition of terrorism)

For a more realistic identification of the degree of danger of terrorism, and in connection to that, the threats faced by Serbia and by The FR of Yugoslavia, and the neighboring countries of the Balkan Region as well, it is indispensable to start from the fact that terrorism of the Albanian separatists is present at Kosovo.


TIRANA, August 18, 1998

It turned out that (some) "people who entered Albania are now identified as responsible for terrorist attacks in other countries", the Albanian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Pascal Milo, stated.

The Albanian Minister issued this statement several days after the United States of America withdrew the members of the families of their embassy in Tirana, and the personnel whose work was not indispensable for the moment, fearing possible attacks, similar to those on American embassies in Kenia and Tanzania.

Four militant Islamists where arrested in Albania and extradited to Egypt in July, and that operation was done, according to the Albanian press, with the assistance of the American Central Information Agency (CIA).

Speculations that the recent attacks against American embassies in Nairobi and Dar Es Salam were maybe a revenge for the extradition of the mentioned four, were stimulated by the warning to Washington about possible revenge, addressed by the banned Egyptian militant organization Jihad.

The Albanian newspapers state today that ten foreigners, from non-mentioned countries, left Albania during the last five days, thus avoiding police raids in their homes. However, that was not officially confirmed, Reuters said.

The Cult of Mujahedins


The Albanian national-separatist movement in Kosovo and Metohija used terrorism from the very beginning as a means for the achievement of its strategic objective, and that is the secession of Kosovo from Serbia and from the FR of Yugoslavia, and its annexation to Albania, i. e. the creation of the so-called Greater Albania in the Balkans, at the expense of the neighboring countries, primarily of Yugoslavia, Macedonia and Greece.

The terrorism in Kosovo and Metohija got a lot of strength during 1989, by various forms of violence and torture against Serbs and Montenegrins in Kosovo and Metohija, by attacks against military facilities, police, enterprises, and by massive destructions of state and private property.



1. Terrorist Attacks Against Citizens (see Add. 1 and Add 2)

Terrorism in Kosovo and Metohija escalated in its worst form during 1998. In the time period between January 1st, and October, 31st, 1998, the Albanian terrorists committed, in the territory of the AP of Kosovo and Metohija, a total of 1.496 terrorist attacks, out of which 624 or 41.7% against citizens and other facilities. During these attacks, 152 citizens were killed (out of which 69 members of the Albanian national minority, 37 Serbs and Montenegrins, three Roms and 42 persons whose identity was not established). 69 persons were heavily injured, and 64 injured.


In their actions, the terrorists killed civilians, women, children and elder people, in fields, in the yards of their houses, in vehicles. The murders were committed in cruel and ruthless ways, often in front of the members of the families or in front of the peasants, in order to scare the population, and in order to make them participate in terrorists’ actions.


2. Murders and Acts of Violence Against Albanians

In the time period between January, 1st, and October, 31st of the current year, the Albanian terrorists killed in terrorist attacks in Kosovo and Metohija a total of 152 citizens, out of whom 69 or 45.3% Albanians - loyal to Serbia and to Yugoslavia. 30 persons belonging to the Albanian national minority have been heavily injured, and 32 persons injured. The members of the Albanian national minority who are loyal towards Serbia and Yugoslavia, as their states, represent the majority of the victims of the attacks of the terrorists.

The bands of Albanian terrorists attacked, on April 14th, in the village Budisavci, Commune of Klina, Ramadan Uka (1971) and his wife Zoja (1972), for Ramadan’s father Nezaj voted at the elections for the President of the Republic of Serbia, which took place in December of the last year.

However, because of the stress and of the consequences of bleeding of Veljbona - who was eight months pregnant, her baby was lost.


During the night between August 22nd and 23rd of the current year, at the Prizren - Suva Reka road, near the village Toplicane, they killed by shots from automatic weapons Ljatifa Koljola, and her nineteen year old daughter Rusa. Their corpses were found in the trench along the road, with hands tied at the back, and with bindings over their eyes. Otherwise, the Koljoli family is known for its public condemnation of the separatist policy of the Albanian terrorists.


The Albanians of Roman-Catholic confession were one of the main objectives of the terrorists bands. They took from them, by force, the firearms they possessed quite legally - with the approval of the responsible state organ, they ill-treated them and threatened them with physical liquidation if they do not join them in their terrorist activities. So, on May, 19th of the current year, around 8 p.m., after the intrusion in a shop in the village Smac, Commune of Djakovica, the Albanian terrorists mistreated eight Albanians of Roman Catholic confession, saying: "what are you doing here, while you, the Catholics, drink and have good time, we fight for you", and they plundered them and killed Pnisi Nedzat, an Albanian Roman Catholic with an automatic rifle; on March, 19th, the Albanian terrorists inflicted heavy injuries to Nikaj Uku and Nikaj Dedu, from the village Lug Bunar; on July, 17th, they killed Gasi Marko (1927) from the village Dobri Do, Commune of Orahovac., and threw his corpse on the pavement of the main road Kosovska Mitrovica - Srbica; on August, 6th, they killed by automatic armament Merturi Pren (1933), Merutri Mire (1934), Krasnici Perko (1932) and Krasnici Prend (1935), all Albanians of Roman Catholic confession from the village Mece, Commune of Djakovica, where their corpses were found.

The Albanian separatists quite often destroyed transformer stations and water supply facilities, damaged PTT facilities and lines in order to leave the population without water and electricity, thus increasing their fear and sense of insecurity. Such were the cases in Pec, Decani, Djjakovica, Orahovac and Istok, whose citizens were during many days deprived of electricity. The Albanian terrorists also tried to take or destroy the vital facilities in the great economic systems and enterprises (the open pit mine "Belacevac", the Trepca Mines in Stari Trg, "Orvin" in Orahovac, etc.), in order to put them out of operation for a long time. Besides, they took trench-diggers and other construction machines in some enterprises, for the construction of fortifications. Until now, the assessed material damage amounts to many millions of US dollars.


16. The Abuse of Religious Buildings for the Performance of Terrorist Actions

The Albanian terrorists abused, in the course of the last ten months, many times, the Moslem religious buildings, using them as machine-gun nests, from which they fired at vehicles, citizens, police and military convoys. So, for instance, the Albanian terrorists fired from the mosque in the village Hamidije, Commune Obilic, with automatic weapons and killed the police Lukic Zivorad (1965) and Karavelic Branko (1967), and heavily injured the policeman Bogicevic Dalibor (1973). Sniper fire was opened from the mosque in the center of Junik, a number of policemen who guarded the communication line Pec - Decani - Djakovica,were killed or wounded.





The Albanian terrorists use, for the purchase of armament and of diversion-terrorist equipment, important funds earned in the illegal sales of narcotics in a number of Western European countries and in the USA. The Albanian Narco-Mafia has an extremely powerful smuggling network in the world, mainly consisting of Albanians from Kosovo and Metohija. This is shown by the data of INTERPOL: INTERPOL arrested, during the first 8 months, 1998, 84 Yugoslav citizens because of smuggling and sales of narcotics; almost all of them were Albanians (81 persons). 120 kg and 658 grams of heroin, 8 kg and 834 grams of cocaine, 3.100 kg of hashish and 2kg of Marijuana were seized from them.


The foundation "Domovina zove" with numerous branch offices in European countries, was established in Switzerland, and the "Dardania Bank" in Tirana, for the purchase of armament for the needs of the terrorists. These organizations receive the illegal taxes, imposed to Albanians abroad, in the amount of 3% of the earnings of all persons, and voluntary contributions, in the amount of at least 1.000 DEM or 1.000 Swiss Franks per annum.


Beside the purchase of armament, a part of the profit from narcotics is used by Albanians for the purchase of estates from Serbian and non-Albanian population, under various kinds of pressures, in their endeavors to create an ethnically clean area.

In the region of Kosmet, the majority of Albanians doing business do not respect the regulations regarding the bookkeeping and the taxes, already for a long time. At the same time, they pay taxes, via the "Democratic Alliance of Kosovo" to the illegal institutions of the self-proclaimed "Republic Kosovo": this is proven by numerous receipts for the taxes paid, and lists of enterprises and persons, found by the criminal police. The so-called "OVK" receives important funds coming from foreign countries, as well. The police found many times important amounts of foreign currency by members of the Albanian national minority coming from abroad.



Important quantities of armament possessed by the Albanian terrorists in Kosovo and Metohija come from Albania, either via state channels, or from plundered state warehouses during the riots in that country in 1997, which are now sold at the black market. Also, an important part of the armament is bought by the terrorists, using the above mentioned sources of finance, at the world black market of armament.

Among the armament seized, there were also some mines used massively by Albanian terrorists


During 1998, illegal introduction of huge quantities of armament from Albania into Yugoslavia was organized - introduction of automatic and semi-automatic rifles of western manufacture, machine guns, sniper rifles, submachine guns, bazookas, mortars (mainly 62mm caliber), recoilless cannons, guns, hand grenades, offensive and defensive, anti-tank and anti-infantry mines, explosives, equipment for night observation and aiming, communication facilities (radio equipment, mobile telephones, etc.)

Among the weapons and ammunition seized from the terrorists, especially along the state border to the Republic of Albania, there have been found sniper Swiss-made rifles "Sig-Sauer", caliber 7.62mm with exploding ammunition, which is, otherwise, banned by international conventions, German sniper rifles "SSG 99", American automatic rifles M-16, fast firing cannons "Broving", caliber 12.7mm, mortars caliber 64mm, and anti-armor German-made rockets "Ambrust", British made minesearchers, American big caliber sniper rifles, etc.

It was ascertained that the Albanian terrorists used medical material originating in the NATO warehouses. Besides, there have been found, in the improvised hospitals used by the terrorists, certain quantities of drugs coming from various international humanitarian organizations. So, for instance, in the village Krusevac, Commune Pec, beside important quantities of drugs and medical material, an X-ray apparatus, a surgery table, and complete surgical equipment, worth around 500.000 DEM, have been found.

One of the ways of weapon smuggling for the Albanian terrorists in Kosovo and Metohija



Terrorism in Kosovo and Metohija serves the purpose of creating an ethnically clean "Greater Albania". The Republic of Albania admitted, after quite a long time, that logistic support has been provided to the Albanian terrorists in Kosovo and Metohija from its territory. In the camps and bases in Northern Albania (Bajram Curi, Tropoja, Krum, Kuks and Peskopeja), terrorists are recruited, organized, armed and trained. One of the main headquarters of the terrorists is situated in Bajram Curi, in Albania, and it consists of the former officers of the YPA, of Albanian officers, of officers of the Croatian and Slovenian armies, of the officers of the army of the Moslem-Croatian Federation and of foreign mercenaries.


There are, in Albania, many members of Islamic and other international terrorist organizations, one part being included in the Albanian terrorist units in Kosovo and Metohija. Albania became a nest of terrorism, and it represents a real danger for Europe.


The mixed unit of Mujahedins, "Abu Bekir Sadik" was active in the region of Drenica, and a small group in the region of Smonica; a part of that group was arrested, and the others escaped to Albania.


The terrorist organization, the so-called OVK in Kosovo and Metohija established contacts with radical Islamic countries, where it gets financial aid for the purchase of armament and of military equipment. Centers for the purchase and organization of transport of armament for the needs of the terrorists were also organized in the territory of Bosnia and Hercegovina. Modern armament was purchased in those centers (anti-tank rockets "Maljutka", "Fagot", "Needle", anti-aircraft guns, bazookas "Zolja" and "Osa", tromblons, mines, etc.) Most of this armament is sent by sea to the Republic of Albania, for smuggling into Kosovo and Metohija.

The Albanian separatists in Kosovo and Metohija frequently resorted to the abuse of children for political purposes, thus violating the provisions of the Treaty on the Rights of Children, adopted by the UN General Assembly on November, 11, 1989. By the beginning of June of the current year, the Albanian separatists organized the so-called "children demonstrations" in Pristina, in which children carried slogans and shouted slogans, inviting hatred and terrorism. That happened in the ‘eighties and ‘nineties as well, when the Albanian separatists pushed, during the demonstrations, children as "living shields" in front of them, or when they abused children in the farce of the so-called "uninational poisoning". The greatest responsibility falls on the Albanian separatist for depriving, due to political reasons, children of the Albanian national minority in Kosovo and Metohija of the right to education which is contrary to the mentioned Treaty on the Rights of Children. It is a characteristic fact that they abused several times, during the first ten months of 1998, children for smuggling armament over the state border with the Republic of Albania and for the observation of the border area, in order to collect security interesting data.

After an agreement was reached on October 13th, 1998, between the President of the FR of Yugoslavia, Mr. Slobodan Milosevic, and the Special American Envoy, Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, the remnants of the defeated bands continued terrorist actions and attacks, especially against police buildings and police.


During the time period between October 13th and October 31st, 1998, the Albanian terrorists committed a total of 137 terrorist actions, which is above the average of the terrorist attacks in the previous period of the current year.


112 terrorist attacks, or 81.7% out of the total number of the attacks in this period were committed against the police buildings and the police (Glogovac, 29; Suva Reka, 11; Djakovica and Orahovac 9, each Srbica, 8; Stimlje and Lipljan, 7 each; Prishtina, 5; Pec, Urosevac and Klina 4 each; Kosovska Mitrovica, Obilic, Decani and {Prizren, 3 each; Kosovo Polje, Podujevo and Strpce 1 each); four police were killed, 8 heavily injured, 7 injured. In most of the cases, the attacks were committed against temporary police stations and against the police who were on security points, or engaged in the security of transport lines, control of the traffic and during the performance of other routine tasks. It is important to stress that in this period the number of attacks against the police buildings and against the police increased by three attacks a day more than during the past nine months of the current year.

On October 17th, 1998, during a terrorist attack against the police in the village Orlate, Commune of Glogovac, by automatic armament, bazookas, and by activating hand grenades, three police were killed and two heavily injured.


There were 25 terrorist attacks against the citizens and against other buildings, or 18.3% of the total number of terrorist attacks during the observed period: one person was killed (Albanian). three persons heavily injured, three persons injured. A corpse of a person of Moslem nationality, killed by the Albanian terrorists already in July, and one unidentified corpse, were found near the village Rastavica, Commune Decani.


On October 13th, 1998, in the village Grabovac, Commune of Kosovo Polje, there took place a terrorist attack against the workers assuring the safety of the open pit mine "Belacevac", who were in a service vehicle, taking them to their jobs. Two members of the safety crew, of Serbian nationality, were injured. There was another attack against the safety personnel, on October 16th, 1998, when one worker, of Serbian nationality again, was heavily injured.


During that period, the Albanian terrorists kidnapped four persons of Serbian nationality, whose fate is still unknown (Dobricic Vladimir and Radosevic Nebojsa, TANJUG journalists, Radosavljevic Ranko, farmer from a village near Leposavis, and Milanovic Milena from the village Socanica, Commune Leposavic). Besides, after the arrest of two members of the terrorist organization "OVK", it was discovered that Radunovic Zdravko (1955) from Pec, was kidnapped in the village Dujak, Commune Pec. He was taken, tied, to the village Glodjane, Commune Djakovica, and his further fate is unknown.


Beside the terrorist attacks against the police and the citizens, four terrorist attacks against the members of the Yugoslav Army took place during that time period, from the territory of the Republic of Albania. The attacks took place on October 21/22, 24, 25 and 27 1998, when groups of terrorists (between 8 and 50), opened fire, from the territory of Albania, with infantry armament, on the members of the Yugoslav Army, in the sector of the watchtowers "D. Radanovic" and "Mitar Vojinovic", and near the place "Vrapce", Commune Prizren. There were no injured Yugoslav soldiers in those attacks.


The Albanian terrorists committed three attacks against the positions of the members of the Yugoslav Army (in Oct, 20, 1998 in Suva Reka, on Oct. 21 in Podujevo, and on Oct. 22 in Glogovac). In the attack of Oct 22, 1998 in the village Careva Cesma, Commune Glogovac, one soldier was killed and one heavily injured. Besides, during the night between Oct. 22/23, in the sector "Crni Kamen", Commune Djakovica, a terrorist attack took place against the Yugoslav Army, by Albanian terrorists who penetrated into our territory from the territory of the Republic of Albania. There were no injured soldiers in that attack.


The stabilization of the security situation in the region of Kosovo and Metohija, after the expelling of the terrorist from the majority of the villages in which they terrorized their compatriots, too, who refused to join them, created the conditions for the return of the Albanian population who escaped to their homes. Most of those persons responded to the invitation of the Government of the Republic of Serbia and returned to their homes.
