WARSAW (dpa-AFX) – According to the Polish border guards, three larger groups of migrants have tried in vain to overcome the border barriers from Belarus and enter the EU illegally. A soldier was injured in the head and had to receive medical treatment, said a spokeswoman for the authority on Wednesday. In the vicinity of Dubicze Cerkiewne, a group of more than 100 people tried to penetrate into Polish territory on Tuesday evening. “These people were very aggressive, they threw stones at Polish officials, threw a boardwalk over the barbed wire barriers, and migrants cut through parts of the barrier,” said the spokeswoman. The group managed to get to the Polish side in the short term. But they were arrested and taken back to the border.
Two more attempted border breaches occurred near the town of Mielnik, where groups of around 30 migrants tried to cross the border in the evening and shortly before midnight. The border guards registered a total of 267 attempts to illegally cross the border. Since Poland does not allow journalists into the area, the information cannot be verified.
For weeks, thousands of migrants have been trying to get from Belarus across the EU’s external borders to Poland or the Baltic states. The EU accuses the authoritarian Belarusian ruler Alexander Lukashenko of targeting people from crisis regions to Minsk in order to smuggle them into the EU./dhe/DP/eas
