One jihadist killed. Apparently officials believe he was planning “possible suicide bomb attacks on mosques in Novi Pazar.” Takfir in action.
“Wahhabi killed in clash with police,” from B92 News, with thanks to all who sent this in:
NOVI PAZAR, PRIÅ TINA — One person was killed, and two wounded early Friday in a clash between police and a group of Wahhabis near Novi Pazar.
Around 4:50 a.m. Friday police arrived in the village of Donja Trnava near Novi Pazar, to search a house there, acting on a tip-off that a leader of the militant Islamic sect was hiding there, a MUP statement said.
A hand grenade was thrown at the police officers as they approached the house, injuring one, the statement said.
“As the police officers approached the house, ten dogs were released at them, and as they were entering the premises, the suspected terrorist group members threw a hand grenade and opened fire at the officers, injuring one,” the statement said.
“Policemen then retreated to a secure point, while the Islamic extremists, in a bid to flee the scene, continued to shoot and throw hand grenades,” the statement continued.
Police responded with machine-gun fire, killing the group leader Mirsad Prentić….
Meanwhile, Reuters reports that a United Nations official in Kosovo, where Prentić was wanted for firearms offences, said MUP “believed that he, along with another person, was planning possible suicide bomb attacks on mosques in Novi Pazar”.
