The presence of thousands of migrants along the Turkish border concerns Greece

Thousands of immigrants wanting to enter Greece are present at the Turkish border, which the citizens of Greece are calling a new crisis.

According to the news agency AFP, the local population expressed concern over the expected arrival of thousands of migrants.

Mayor Giorgos Krampatazakis of the village of Marasia, near the Greek border, called it an "attack."

It should be noted that this border is considered to be a common entry point for migrants to Greece along the Eros River.

According to reports, more than 13,000 immigrants are gathered on the shore of the aforementioned river.

It should be noted that in the border between Turkey and Greece, the river covers about 200 kilometres (125 miles) which separates Turkey from Greece and then from the European Union.

The EU is also worried by a large number of migrants from Turkey.

It is remembered that over one million immigrants entered the EU via Greece in 2015, most of the migrants had arrived here from Damascus through the Syrian civil war.

It should be noted that Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan had threatened the European Union that if he did not play a positive role in Syria, he would open the border for migrants and immigrants would enter the EU through Greece. ۔

"There are thousands of people on our borders and this is what happened in 2015, God help us," said a Greek citizen.
