The head of the Serbian government Office for Kosovo and Metohija Petar Petkovic said on Friday that the grenade attack on an Elektrokosmet facility in northern Kosovska Mitrovica suited only those seeking destablisation on the ground, and noted that no threats to security in the north of the Serbian province would be allowed.

“The energy agreement from Brussels ensures stable and independent electricity supplies to the Serbian company Elektrosever as well as much-needed peace to Serbs,” Petkovic wrote in a Twitter post.

The attack on Elektrokosmet suits only those who want destabilisation on the ground and are against an independent power supply system in the north of Kosovo and Metohija, Petkovic noted.

“That is why Pristina politicians had better not be accusing the Serbs, who will certainly not do anything to their own detriment. We will not allow anyone to be a threat to security in the north of Kosovo and Metohija,” he added.

A hand grenade was lobbed at the facility at around 10.45 pm on Thursday and the blast damaged a high-voltage cable and four vehicles.

No one was injured in the explosion.

The interior minister of the provisional Pristina authorities later said “Serbian parallel structures” were responsible for the incident.
