Poland: Migrants Attacking Border With ‘Full Aggression’ Using Makeshift Weapons

The Polish government claims that migrants are attacking border guards by engaging in “full aggression” on the Belarusian frontier, armed with a range of improvised weapons.

“Although the numbers [attempting to cross] change, the methods remain the same – migrants, always in groups, encouraged and directly aided by Belarusian services – storm the Polish border with full aggression,” stated Stanislaw Zaryn director of the National Security Department, in an update regarding the border crisis.

“Stones and rubble delivered by Belarusians, logs, metal poles from destroyed border fencing are used as weapons against the Polish border patrols,” Zaryn said.

The Poles haven’t managed to stop every crossing attempt however they have been more secure than other European nations and have declared that they were cooperating together with “representatives of Iraq and Congo in the procedure of identification of those foreigners who, having managed to illegally enter Poland from Belarus without any ID documents, have been detained and placed in centres kept by the Polish authorities” likely in the hope of deporting the offenders.
