Serbs, who had been protesting since May 26, gathered in tents set up around a security cordon erected by NATO Peacekeeping Force (KFOR) soldiers in front of Zvecan municipality in the early hours of the morning.

On May 26, Kosovo Serbs protested against the election of Albanian mayors who won local elections on April 23 in the municipalities of Zvecan, Zubin Potok and Leposavić, where Serbs are concentrated in northern Kosovo.
As protests continued in the area, the Kosovo Police and the International Security Force in Kosovo cordoned off municipal buildings with wire fences and increased the number of personnel in the area.
There was a clash between the Kosovo police, who were sent to the area to protect the Albanian mayors, and the Kosovo Serbs.
Serbia also decided to station its army on the border with Kosovo.
Serbia considers Kosovo, which unilaterally declared its independence in 2008, to be its territory.
