Turkey is angered by Greece's move to build embankments behind the border line, according to Turkish media.
Thousands of illegal migrants from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan and a few from Syria, have been waiting at the border for 12 days to cross into Greece. However they have been met with strong resistance from Greek armed forces.
“Greece, which continues to dig sand dunes behind the border, is trying to prevent border breaches with soldiers who have prolonged rifles. Greek soldiers also began to reinforce the fence in sections of the Evros River, where there were crossings, ”the Turkish press wrote.
Between Sunday and Monday morning, Greek authorities reported that they had blocked 1,646 attempts to cross the border and arrested two people – one Moroccan and one Egyptian.
