ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the ability of Kosovo to keep the peace as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) plans to pull out its forces known as KFOR. A resident fears that the move will revive the violence between Albanians and Kosovar Serbs. Another threat is from extremist groups after the police seized automatic firearms, military uniforms and laptop computers allegedly containing information on potential targets from a Wahabbi Islamic sect near Prizren. KFOR also guards Serbian enclaves to prevent attacks from Albanians.
