HNDGS releases new videos from the Evros Greek-Turkish border

Tension flared up again on Wednesday evening along the Greek-Turkish borders at the Evros post of Kastanies.

Since 6:00 pm Wednesday and for at least three hours, Turkish authorities reportedly threw tear gas while refugees hurled stones and other objects to the Greek side of the border fence, while Greek police stationed in the area foiled their attempts to break through.

Similar incidents took place at Kastanies on Tuesday.

Despite the flare-ups of tension and clashes on the borderline, works to further reinforce the existing fence are continuing normally, Greek authorities said.

Meanwhile the Hellenic National Defence General Staff has released videos from the tension at the border.
