Tear gas, smoke bombs have covered a border between Greece and Turkey as tensions involving thousands of migrants are concentrated on the border.
According to the AP, a group of migrants on March 7 tried to pull down a fence in hopes of breaking through the border to enter Greece, while other groups repeatedly threw stones at Greek police. In response, Greek authorities fired tear gas at this group of young people.
At least two migrants were injured in the latest clash between Greek police and migrants gathered on the Turkish border, at the border near the Greek village of Kastanies. Like the clashes that took place earlier, Greek police fired tear gas to hinder the crowd, while Turkish police fired tear gas at Greece.
On the evening of 7/3, Greek police use water cannons to extinguish the fire was lit along the border.
Thousands of migrants have tried to invade Greece, a member of the European Union, since Turkey announced it would not retain migrants as a 2016 agreement with Brussels.
Ankarar argues that the country cannot accommodate hundreds of thousands of migrants, especially as more and more refugees from Syria flee.
Greek officials say the country has broken more than 39,500 migrant cross-border plots in the past 8 days. In addition, Athens forced 12 people to this city airport with a fake passport.
