Main article: Gošince attack

40 armed men on 21 April 2015 showed up with National Liberation Army (NLA) patches and attacked a border police station located at Gošince, near the Kosovo border. Before they left for Kosovo, they issued this message through an interpreter: "We are from the National Liberation Army. Tell them that neither Ali Ahmeti nor Nikola Gruevski can save you. We do not want any framework agreement and if we see you here again, we will kill you. We want our own state."[3][4][5]
