PRISTINA – A graffiti with the message “ISIS is coming” has been daubed on the wall around the Serbian Orthodox church of St Nicholas in Pristina.

It was first spotted last weekend by Italian KFOR soldiers who patrol around the church twice a week, the RTK2 has reported.

Parish priest Darko Marinkovic noted that he had only been notified of the incident a few days ago and that it has been reported to the Kosovo police.

“Worst of all, it is an invitation to a terrorist organisation that nearly half of the world is fighting at this time,” Marinkovic told the RTK2.

The graffiti appeared just days before Thursday’s 12th anniversary of the March 17, 2004 pogrom against Kosovo Serbs, when the Pristina church was torched, along with many others.
