Hamëz Jashari[a] (1950 - March 1998) was a Kosovar Albanian combatant and brother of Adem Jashari. He was also a commander of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA). He accompanied his brother Adem during the Kosovo War, in 1998.
On 30 December 1991, when the brothers were at home in Prekaz, the Serbian police surrounded them in attempt to have them arrested. The two brothers managed to escape free and unharmed.
Later, Adem and Hamëz started attacks against the Yugoslav Police that discriminated the Albanian population in Kosovo.
Finally, on 5 March 1998, Prekaz was attacked by Yugoslav Tanks, Artillery and Miliz. Adem and Hamëz Jashari and approximately sixty members of their family were killed, the sole survivor being Hamëz's then 11-year-old daughter, Besarta.
