Migrants in Turkey who do not willingly want to go to Europe can be seen being forced off a bus by Turkish military officers and police at gunpoint so they can be ferried to the Greek border, as revealed in this RAIR Foundation USA exclusively-translated video:
Another video showing the abuse was posted on Twitter:
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s has opened his country’s borders with Europe making good on a longstanding threat to flood the continent with 3.6 million Syrian migrants.
As summarized at Breitbart:
“The European Union, including the United Kingdom, funnelled billions of euros to the Islamist government in Ankara in an effort to persuade it to bring the migrant crisis under a modicum of control after hundreds of thousands of illegal border crossings, often by sea, in 2015-16.
“That deal unravelled at the end of February 2020, as Turkish president Reep Tayyip Erdogan announced migrants were free to pass through his country and into Europe, seemingly as punishment for the West’s failure to offer sufficient support to his invasion of Syria, which has become fraught with danger as his forces clash with the Russian-backed Syrian government in Idlib province.”
Erdoğan controls the migration flows to Greece and continually uses the “migration weapon” to extort more money and other political concessions from the European Union.
RAIR Foundation USA recently reported on how the the Turkish government is not only transporting migrants and migrant prisoners to the Greek border but also arming them with tear gas to fight Greece’s border agents.
The actions of the Turkish authorities are inconceivable and should be perceived as an act of war by the European Union.
