Foundations of Kosovar Monastery Damaged

The site, like many other Serbian Orthodox holy places in Kosovo, is theoretically protected by the KFOR. Despite protests from both the Serbian Orthodox Eparchy of Raska and Prizren and the representation of the European Union in Kosovo the excavation works have yet to be stopped. More here.
