EULEX Kosovo vehicle attacked in Pristina

A vehicle belonging to the European mission EULEX (Rule of Law) was attacked on Tuesday in the streets of Pristina, not far from the headquarters. The occupant of the vehicle who was on board was not injured, specifies a press release from Eulex. An investigation is underway into this “incident” which is the first of its kind in several months. What seems certain is that the “damage was not caused by a bullet” we specify at Eulex HQ which plays down “which is not an attack but just an incident“. The current investigation aims to find out “whether it's intentional or not“. Without speculating, we could compare them to the various arrests and judgments which have taken place in recent weeks and in which the European teams have participated.
