ERP KIM Info Service has received from well informed international sources in Kosovo a timeline of the incidents and events in Kosovo Province in the period between 15-20 March. At the moment the Diocese is actively collecting all available information on these events in which more than 4.000 Serbs have been left homeless, at least 8 Serbs died and around 30 churches have been either completely destroyed or seriously damaged by Kosovo Albanian mob. All available information and our contacts with different intelligence sources prove that the operation (called by some as Operation Matchstick) was carefully planned beforehand and that behind it are some of the Kosovo Albanian leaders. The fact that some Kosovo Protection Corps officers and members as well as quite a number of Kosovo Police service officials participated in the riots, forcing Serbs out of their homes allegedly to save their lives but in reality to allow the coming crowd to burn their homes was a pattern which could be seen in many parts of Kosovo. According to still unconfirmed information in the clashes between KFOR, UNMIK police with armed Kosovo Albanian rioters and terrorists several internationals have been killed. However the international sources officially still refuse to confirm this information.
