Refugees burst through Macedonia-Greece border fence

It is reported by local TV media that a horde of refugees has broken a barbed-wire fence with steel pole as a battering ram on the Macedonia-Greece border.

TV footages showed that refugees pushing against the fence at Idomeni, tearing off the barbed wire while Macedonian police let off tear gas to force them away from the site.

“Refugees opened a section of the fence with the battering ram of steel pole, although it is not clear how many refugees managed to enter,” according to a local reporter.

However, those, who are trying to reach northern Europe, are Syrian and Iraqi refugees.

Already, the Europe is facing an unprecedented influx of refugees who fled from the war zones in Africa and the Middle East, particularly Syria.

Although, there is a strong accusation against the west of fostering terrorism in Middle East, which is being considered as the main reason behind the departure of refugees from their home countries.

    Hi Southfront, there’s a name dispute between FYROM and Greece for the
    term Macedonia. Please don’t call FYROM Macedonia, it’s very insulting.
