Several villages in the vicinity of Skopje sustained severe damage following torrential rains and a flood surge last Saturday evening, Aug. 6th.
In total, eighteen personnel and thirteen vehicles belonging to the NATO-led KFOR mission deployed from Kosovo to the stricken area of Stajkovci near Skopje. The deployment is expected to last around 10 days.
KFOR has led a peace-support operation in Kosovo since 1999. Currently counting approximately 4,600 troops, the operation helps maintain a safe and secure environment in Kosovo, as mandated by the UN Security Council.
