Once again, illegal immigrants in the Moria migrant camp have attacked a chapel, this time, only days out from Easter.
The chapel of Saint Catherine for the second time in two years has been attacked.
The chapel is located on the road from Panagiouda to Moria migrant camp.
Illegal immigrants from the camp previously damaged the interior wall, ceiling and floor, making it unusable for the Christian migrants from Ethiopia and Eritrea who once operated in this particular chapel.
Lesvos Post says that “not only the vandals but also the authorities of our areas are to blame, and especially the Diocese of Mytilene, where in recent years allowed a few chapels to be demolished over time.”
It should be noted that the chapel was locked by the authorities after its last disaster, but this did not stop the illegal immigrants from attacking it.
Moria resident Makis Pavlellis, who also shared the photos, commented on the event: “You have been overwhelmed by religious sentiment in the Holy Days. But for the chapels of Moria, which are desecrated every day, you do what you do not see, you do what you do not know, although many of you hold positions of responsibility. Prosecutors and police directors, elected mayors and metropolitans.”
The Moria migrant camp is well over capacity and has become a hotbed of criminality, including rape, murder and theft.
Most of the murders and rape are committed inside the migrant camp, but often the criminality spills out to the local residents of the area who have had a sharp increase in theft and vandalism.
Only last week the main entrance to the Saint Raphael church close to the Moria migrant camp was attacked but illegal immigrants, as reported by Greek City Times.
The attack on Saint Raphael’s church came off the back of many other shocking events in, including two gangs of Afghani immigrants battling each other, African immigrants ridiculing and coughing on police in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, and thousands of olives trees being destroyed.
