Yesterday a large convoy of illegal migrants moving through the territory of Belarus approached the highway checkpoint of the Polish-Belarusian border “Kuznitsa”.
Natives of the Middle East, approaching the border, tried to enter the territory of Poland. They broke wire fences, actively threw stones at the security forces. In response, Polish border guards used tear gas.
Having failed to achieve their goal, a crowd of migrants set up a campground. The video footage shows bonfires and tents, women and children are present. According to RIA Novosti, referring to its own correspondent, the night passed peacefully.
Given the current situation, the Polish authorities decided to suspend the work of the Kuznitsa checkpoint. The mobilization of several brigades of the Territorial Defense Forces has been announced.
The Polish Ministry of Defense has published a video from the Polish-Belarusian border, where a group of illegal migrants storm the border patrol. They throw stones, bottles and sticks at Polish soldiers through the barrage. The defense department noted that border guards have to deal with such aggression of migrants every day.
