Serbian security forces found military weapons near a military base in southern Serbia along the administrative border of Kosovo.
The police and the country’s top civilian intelligence and security agency the BIA (Security Information Agency) found semi-automatic and assualt rifles in workign area stored in an arms cache in an abandoned building less than half a kilometer from the Peceno Brdo military base.
The abandoned cabin in a heavily wooded area is accessible only on foot or by SUV. No ammunition was found with the firearms which are assumed to have been buried 18 years ago by troopers of the disbanded ethnic Albanian Liberation Army of Presevo, Medvedja and Bujanovac which clashed with Serbian security forces in the south of the country after the war in Kosovo.
The weapons cache included a Chinese-made AK assault rifle, many of which were used by the army of Albania and were looted from its stockpiles during unrest in the mid-1990s. Those weapons were also used by the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) and ethnic Albanian armed formations in North Macedonia.
