League of Peja


League of Peja

League of Peja was an Albanian organization established in 1899 in the homonymous city. It was led by Haxhi Zeka, a former member of the League of Prizren and shared the same platform in quest for an autonomous Albania with the Ottoman Empire. The League ended its activity in 1900 after an armed conflict with the Ottoman forces. Zeka was assassinated by a Serbian agent Adem Zajmi in 1902 with the backing of the Ottoman authorities.
