, and Korca were represented. * Kleisoura was finally recaptured by the Ottomans on August 27. * Other regions involved included Ohrid, Florina, and Kičevo. In the Thessaloniki region, operations were much more limited and without much local involvement, due in part to disagreements between the factions of the Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization (IMRO). There was also no uprising in the Prilep area, immediately to the east of Bitola. * Militias active in the region of Serres, led by Yane Sandanski and an insurgent detachment of the Supreme Committee, held down a large Turkish force. These actions began on the day of the Feast of the Cross (Krastovden in Bulgarian, September 27) and did not involve the local population as much as in other regions, and were well to the east of Monastir and to the west of Thrace. *


political opposition

. Accused of having leftist political leanings during his student days he got transferred to Leskovac. Once there he hooked up with Communist Party (Communist Party of Yugoslavia) (KPJ) members (a political party that was at the time an underground organization because of the ban on its activities in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia) and took part in starting the newspaper ''Leskovačke nedeljne novine'' that wasn't openly communist, but supported political opposition to the ruling coalition and by proxy to King Alexander I Karađorđević (Alexander I of Yugoslavia). Because of this Velebit got transferred again, this time to Priština where he was a judge in the County Court. The continual career demotion didn't deter Velebit from continuing with his leftist activity, in Priština he started a readers' group that met clandestinely in his room to read Marxist literature and discuss politics. When authoriies caught a wiff of this, the search of his room was ordered by the county sheriff, but nothing incriminating was found. Velebit then became the chief of County Court in Kičevo, and later got transferred to Šid where he established contact with more KPJ members among whom was Hertha Haas (at the time a student at Economics High School in Zagreb, later to become Josip Broz Tito's wife). #Diocese of Polog and Kumanovo, headed by Metropolitan Kiril (Cyril (metropolitan)); #Diocese of Debar and Kičevo, headed by Metropolitan Timotej (Timothy (metropolitan)); #Diocese of Prespa and Pelagonia, headed by Metropolitan Petar (Peter (metropolitan)); '''Dobra Voda''' (''Cyrillic'': Добра Вода, ''English (English language)'': Good Water) is a mountain peak near the city of Kičevo in Macedonia (Republic of Macedonia). It is the highest peak of the Celoica mountain range, at 2062 meters above the sea level. Due to tectonic movements, the height of this peak and surrounding mountains continues to rise. This is actually why Macedonia experiences moderate earthquakes around this region. From the top of this peak it is possible to view many surrounding cities: Gostivar, Kičevo, Tetovo, and nearby villages.

History thumb 200px left Kičevo in the 1930s (File:Kičevo old.jpg) Kičevo was noted in one of the documents of the Byzantine emperor (List of Byzantine emperors) Basil II in 1018, and also mentioned by the Ohrid archbishop Theophilact (Theophylact of Bulgaria) in the 11th century. When the region was conquered by the Ottoman Empire, Kičevo was turned into the military and administrative center of the region. Notable monument of that period is a clock tower built in the foothills of the nearby hill called ''Kichevsko Kale''. In the late 19th and early 20th century, Kičevo was part of the Manastir Vilayet of the Ottoman Empire. The activities of the Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization (IMRO) in the region of Kičevo were initiated by the priest Josif from the monastery of Bogorodica Prečista near the city, supported by many teachers from the neighbouring villages. On August 2, 1903, the Christian citizens of Kičevo participated in the Ilinden Uprising, led by Arso Vojvoda and Yordan Piperkata. In 1919 Kičevo and the whole region were incorporated in the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. From 1929 to 1941, Kičevo was part of the Vardar Banovina of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. During World War II, Kičevo was occupied by forces from Fascist Italy (History of Italy as a monarchy and in the World Wars).
