Since Saturday, several thousands of migrants have amassed around the Greek borders and most of them have been prevented from crossing. Greek authorities have officially reported around 10,000 migrants have been prevented entry during 24 hours on Saturday. Some 200 migrants succeeded in crossing during the same time out of which around 40 have been arrested and charged(for the first time in a decade) while the rest are being detained. All of those detained are Afghans, Pakistanis and Somalians. Several reports and witnesses confirm that many of them arrive by the truckloads in Turkish state or state-hired vehicles. A flotilla of 52 naval & coast guard ships has been patrolling the Aegean for the past couple of weeks and has been on high alert since Thursday.
The Greek police & army have adopted a string of very tough measures such as using spray paint all across the border to mark migrants crossing through the forests so that they can spot them later as well as suspending all new asylum application for a month, the summary deportation of those caught in the act, text messaging announcing to anyone coming near the border not to attempt to cross while the infamous sea chain is already under construction and planned to be deployed within the next 3 months. The border crossings are effectively currently under control.
Erdogan had initially announced that he will open the borders for 72 hours and today that these 72 hours lapsed without a dent he promised to keep the borders open indefinitely.
Erdogan is losing ground in Syria, Europe has neither obligation nor interest to prop up the Turkish military activity in Syria as Erdogan is demanding and his migration blackmail has failed to achieve any desired results.
As the EU President put it yesterday: "Our only concern is to support Greece & Bulgaria".
