Skopje, Macedonia, March 27, 2001- Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is providing aid to an increasing number of refugees in Kosovo displaced by escalating fighting in northern Macedonia. With Macedonian security forces attempting to dislodge ethnic-Albanian rebels from the Tetovo area, nearly 5,000 Macedonians have crossed over the Sar Mountains on foot, arriving in the Prizren area of Kosovo.
Fighting intensified over the last several days as Macedonian forces attempted to dislodge rebel forces from the Tetovo area of Macedonia. The country is waiting to see if there will be any peace talks between the Albanian rebels and the Macedonian government.
Just two years after the world watched the region around Serbia's Kosovo province deteriorate, tensions rise again. This time the neighboring country of Macedonia suffers from conflict and refugees are fleeing to Kosovo to avoid the fighting. For weeks the Macedonian government has been trying to pacify aggressive ethnic Albanian militants operating in the areas surrounding Tetovo, Macedonia, a predominantly Albanian town close to the border with Kosovo. The militants have also been causing problems in some of the small villages north of the Macedonian capital of Skopje.
