Fierce reactions in Kosovo against Serbian disinformation about Gllogjan attack
Three people lost their lives on Friday evening in Gllogjan of Deçan, after a shooting with a firearm happened, in the direction of a bus which was carrying students.
After this attack, the Kosovo Police and Prosecution said that they are working to solve this case.
However, officials and the media in Serbia have continued their propaganda, calling this a terrorist attack.
The Chief of Cabinet of the Presidency of Kosovo, Blerim Vela, also reacted to these allegations, describing them as false narratives by the Serbian regime.
“Misinformation warning: A self-proclaimed counterterrorism expert, who is Dodik’s payroll, propagates #Serbia’s regime false narratives about the tragic attack in Gllogjan. The attack wasn’t terrorism related, and our Police is working to bring asap the perpetrator (s) to justice”, Vela reacted on his Twitter profile.
