20th anniversary of NATO intervention in Kosovo

Today, 20 years have passed since NATO troops entered Kosovo to put an end to the massacres and Serbian chauvinism over Kosovo’s innocent citizens.NATO’s intervention in Kosovo preceded a fierce war between the Kosovo Liberation Army and Serbian forces (army, police and paramilitaries) and after many massacres committed against Albanian civilians.

The entry of NATO troops took place after the Kumanovo agreement between Serbian officials and NATO authorities led by British General Mike Jackson at that time. With this agreement, Serbia was forced to withdraw all its police and military forces from Kosovo. Kosovo Liberation Day, along with independence, are considered as events that have marked the greatest turnaround in history.
