On 27 September 2011 KFOR units committed armed violence against civilians who peacefully protested at Jarinje Administrative Crossing.

Bearing in mind that six civilians were wounded it may be concluded that KFOR soldiers attempted to commit massacre over civilian population.

We condemn the needless and excessive use of force against civilians in Jarinje and request order givers and KFOR soldiers be called to criminal responsibility for violence.

We condemn KFOR actions endangering the security of civilians and their freedom of movement, especially because KFOR draws new borders, beyond the mandate defined by Security Council Resolution 1244.

We recall the continuity of violence aiming at ignoring the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244, brutal violating of the European Convention on Human Rights, and all that in presence and with participation of representatives of the International Community in the territory of the Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohia.

We ask the Parliamentary Assembly to follow the developments in the territory of the Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohia.
