The Rugova Massacre was a series of killings of Albanians committed by Serbian and Montenegrin forces in the Rugova region on February 16, 1919.[1] The soldiers burned women and children, raped and massacred a total amount of 432 Albanians. The report was collected by two priests in exile who compiled it and handed it to the British Brigadier General George Fraser Philips, head of the British Military Control Commission in Albania and Montenegro, in Shkodra. The survivors fled into the Gjakova Highlands in Albania.[2][3][4]
