A 50-strong Albanian terrorist formation has entrenched on the so-called Black Rock located in the vicinity of the Macedonian capital of Skopje. They are led by Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the junior brother of Al-Qaeda's Balkans headquarters commander, the Dnevnik, an influential Macedonian newspaper, reported on Friday referring to the Macedonian and Israeli intelligence. According to its data, the fighters have built fortifications on the Black Rock. The terrorists have also taken control over the western suburbs of the Macedonian capital, the source of potable water for Skopje. A part of Albanian terrorists left Macedonia after signing the peace treaty between the Macedonian government and Albanian separatists in September. Observers believe that the resumption of their activities relates to the fact that Macedonian parliament is protracting the adoption of Constitutional amendments extending the rights of Albanians in Macedonia.
