11 of the refugees, including children, who crossed the Greek border seeking “political asylum,” were attacked with knives by individuals wearing masks and carrying weapons.
61 people, including 11 children, who crossed the Greek border escaping from the AKP regime, are awaiting help in the Orestiada region. The refugees are requesting political asylum from the Greek government. In short videos they released, the refugees use the expressions, “We don’t want to be pushed back. We are waiting for help. If we are pushed back, we will be arrested again and tortured.” Later, individuals wearing masks and carrying weapons arrived at the area where the refugees were located. The individuals with knives in their hands began to attack the refugees. It can be seen that the attackers swung their knives indiscriminately.
