History

The population of the town has historically been predominantly ethnic Albanian. The town was largely destroyed by Serbian forces in 1998. Town residents only returned following the 1998 withdrawal of Serbian paramilitary police and military, in response to international pressures.

The town became a stronghold for the ethnically Albanian Kosovo Liberation Army during the Kosovo War in 1999. The United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) formally re-established the municipality of Mališevo in July 2000. During the war, a number of atrocities were committed by both Albanian and Yugoslav forces. One such incident occurred in Mališevo, the execution of no fewer than seven Serbian men, named the Mališevo Massacre. The UN-run Office on Missing Persons and Forensics began the excavations at the site in May 2005.
