On May 4, about 4,000 Albanian guerrillas from Kosovo infiltrated Macedonian territory and conquered much of northern Macedonia, mainly the area around Kumanovo. With this, another battlefield was opened. Battle were fought in the villages of Slupcane, Vaksince, Matejce, Lipkovo, Orizari, Otlja, etc. The development of the war at that time was on the side of the NLA. This was followed by two weeks of fighting. On May 24, Macedonian security forces launched a major operation in the villages of Vaksince and Slupcane, liberating Vaksince.
