Today marks the 24th anniversary of the massacre of 376 people in Mija village, Gjakova municipality, on April 27, 1999.
24 years ago, within a few hours, the Serb forces in the village in question carried out the most terrible and largest massacre in the 1998-1999 Kosovo War.
On the anniversary of the Mija massacre, the President of Kosovo, Fyuza Osmani, said, “There are still open graves in Mija, and there are mothers who come there and cry next to the empty grave, because the Serbian regime is still hiding information about the whereabouts of those killed in Mija and all over Kosovo.”
Recalling that the massacre of Mia was a permanent wound, Osmani stated that this terrible massacre was a stone that should weigh on the conscience of the Serbian regime.
Osmani said, “This is why we must say out loud here every day that those killed in Mija are the victims of the Serb genocide committed in Kosovo. This genocide should be known by its true name. Mija is undeniable evidence of the state’s intent.” Terrible to kill mass people.” He said.
