Gjilan/Gnjilane did not suffer as much damage as other parts of Kosovo during the
1999 conflict and therefore most of the infrastructure is intact with the exception
of the villages of Zhegër/Žegra, Cërnicë/Cernica, and Zhegofc/Žegovac. Nevertheless,
years of negligence, lack of maintenance and antagonism between the rural and urban
area, have caused damage to the infrastructure in the municipality.
