Vitina (Viti in Albanian) is the capital of the Municipality of Vitina in Kosovo. Following the Kosovo War, it was the home of A Company, 2/505 Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division, the first KFOR troops to begin stabilization efforts in the municipality. In July of 1999, Vitina was the site of a grenade attack on the weekly market, perpetrated by Serbians angered by the killing a few days prior of a Serbian farmer. After the initial unit left, Vitina was the site of a subsequent international scandal when a soldier from the U.S. Army unit raped and killed a local girl. The subsequent investigation uncovered serious training and leadership deficiencies in the 3/504 Parachute Infantry Regiment, and catalysed a tremendous change in the training of units deploying for peacekeeping operations. Towns in the Vitina municipality, or obstina, include Kabas, Binac, and Drobez.
