Serbian Orthodox cemetery vandalized in Kosovo Mitrovica

June 6, 2017 – 90% of the graves in the Serbian Orthodox cemetery have been vandalized and desecrated. The incident occurred in a city that was at the center of the Kosovo War in 1998 to 1999, which pitted the Orthodox Serbian and Muslim Albanian sides against one another. Serbians are allowed to visit this cemetery once per year, which is located on the Albanian side of the city. Serbian bystanders have observed a mass destruction of their relatives’ gravestones recently.
