Greek Security Forces Attacked by Tear Gas at Turkish Border

The Greek-Turkish border at Kastanies on Evros river resembles a war zone on Friday morning as the Greek security forces deployed to prevent thousands of migrants storming into the country came under attack by smoke bombs and tear gas.


Greek Reporter correspondent at Kastanies says that it was an attack apparently coordinated by drones deployed by the Turkish police to help migrants cross the fence at the border line.
