The Kosovo police said on Friday that the Jarinje and Brnjak crossings have been reopened almost three weeks after the Serbs in northern Kosovo put up road blocks.

Earlier, an N1 reporter said that all the barricades in northern Kosovo have been removed.

The two trucks that were set on fire during the night from Wednesday to Thursday at a barricade in North Kosovska Mitrovica and a truck torched in the village of Srbovac on the Zvecan – Leposavic road have not been moved.

Following the removal of the barricade in Rudare, the Zvecan – Pristina road was opened to traffic.

Barricades in north Kosovo were erected in Rudare near Zvecan, in Ibarska Slatina and Lesak near Leposavic, in North Mitrovica and in Zubin Potok.
