Among the refugees will be over 30 families who are mostly from Afghanistan, while some are from Iran and Iraq.

The relocation of the refugees is taking place in an agreement between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis to relocate 1,553 refugees from Greece to Germany after the destruction of the migrant camp in Moria.

A total of 333 refugees have already been relocated to Germany.
