Two people have been injured from the explosion of a hand grenade in the late hours of Monday in North Mitrovica.

The Deputy Director of Police for the Northern region, Veton Elshani, told Radio Free Europe that one of the injured is in a more serious health condition and is being treated at the hospital in North Mitrovica. However, according to him, he is out of life-threatening danger.

Meanwhile, the other person has been lightly injured.

“We have no reason to believe that this case is related to ethnic issues,” said Elshani.

According to the Police, the incident occurred at 23:50 on January 15, when three individuals, of Serbian nationality – two of whom were injured – left an establishment known as “Bishevac” in North Mitrovica. As they exited, a vehicle approached them and threw a hand grenade.

The explosion also damaged seven vehicles nearby, and security authorities stated that they are working on clarifying this case.

In the past, there have been incidents with explosive devices in North Mitrovica, a municipality predominantly inhabited by Serbs.
