American Soldiers To Move From Monteith To Bondsteel

Gjilan, 14 Mar 2006 (Radio Kosova) – Majority of American KFOR soldiers will be transferred from Camp Monteith in Gjilan to Camp Bondsteel near Ferizaj.

“Only a small number of American soldiers will remain in Monteith by the end of this month,” stated Major Dobrovksi in a meeting of the municipal council for the security of communities. He added that regardless of this movement within the American sector, American soldiers will continue their presence in this region through patrols and will provide the same security.

Camp Monteith was opened since the KFOR troops entered Kosova in June 1999. Before this time this camp was used by the former Yugoslav Army.
