Turkey Deploys 1,000 Special Police Forces To Greek Border To Stop Migrant Pushback

Click to see full-size image

On March 4th, a video was shared on Twitter, purportedly showing a Turkish police officer forcing Syrian migrants off a bus near the Greek border, while they’re resisting to go.

Turkey is deploying 1,000 special police forces along its border with Greece to halt the pushback of migrants toward its territory, Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said, adding that 164 migrants had been wounded by Greek authorities.

Soylu’s comments come amid a war of words between Ankara and Athens following Turkey’s decision to no longer abide by a 2016 deal with the European Union to halt illegal migration flows to Europe in return for billions of euros in aid.

“They wounded 164 people. They tried to push 4,900 people back to Turkey,” he said. “We are deploying 1,000 special force police to the border system… to prevent the push-back.”

In regard to claims that a migrant had been killed, Greece denied any such thing had happened.

Greek government spokesman Stelios Petsas was adamant there had been “no such incident with fire from the Greek authorities” and accused Turkey of “creating and spreading fake news”.

The Head of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen expressed her support of Greece as the “shield” of the EU.

“Our first priority is to ensure order is maintained at the Greek external border, which is also a European border,” Ursula von der Leyen said.

She promised Greece, which she called a “European aspida [shield]”, €700m (£608m; $780m) in financial aid.

The EU also sent a Frontex force comprising seven vessels, two helicopters, one plane, three thermal-vision vehicles and 100 extra border guards, as well as has provided civil protection aid including medical equipment and teams, and shelters.

“The Greek worries are our worries,” von der Leyen told reporters at the Kastanies border crossing.

“This border is not only a Greek border but it is also a European border and I stand here today as a European at your side… We have come here today to send a very clear statement of European solidarity and support to Greece…

“I am fully committed to mobilising all the necessary operational support to the Greek authorities.”

The President of the European Council Charles Michel said that there was no migrant crisis and this was created by Turkey.

Michel met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to discuss the issue.

“The President of the European Council reiterated his support to Greece, Bulgaria and Cyprus. He also acknowledged Turkey’s efforts in hosting millions of refugees. The EU-Turkey Statement remains the basis of our migration partnership. It was agreed in good faith and needs continued efforts from both sides.

Reducing the current migration tensions on the borders of Europe is essential. Europe is ready to speed up support to Syrians in Turkey and their host communities.”

Michel was also cited as saying the following:

Defending his tough line on maintaining the border, Prime Minister Mitsotakis said Greece could not and would not be “blackmailed”.

“This is no longer a refugee problem,” he said. “This is a blatant attempt by Turkey to use desperate people to promote its geopolitical agenda and to divert attention from the horrible situation in Syria.”

        We can all begin to sanction Turkish products ourselves. Beko electrical goods and BMC machinery products and Turkish holidays being just three.

        • AM Hants

          Funny, but, Turkish holidays have never appealled to me, the same as Beko products and don’t require BMC machinery. So sanctioned them without even thinking about it. Wonder how the Turkish Barbers, competing with the coffee and charity shops, down the local High Streets will handle things?

    The European Union has not fulfilled any of the treaty clauses. None of this would have happened if the European Union had fulfilled its responsibility. The European Union is already weakened because it knows that Turkey is no longer warm.

    • TS

      Yes, this is the fault of the EU. They haven’t been supplying Turkey with the agreed funds in order to help assist Turkey with the migrant crisis. I don’t blame Turkey for this.

  • FlorianGeyer

    Please please can a shooting war start between Greece and Turkey.
    The Greeks should liberate Turkish occupied Cyprus.

    A NATO on NATO war would also be cathartic for the long outdated organisation.

    Surprisingly the BBC has not yet aired the Turk police forcing migrant pawns of the bus at the Greek border at gunpoint.

    • AM Hants

      BBC, wonder why they are not reporting? Wonder if it is anything to do with foreign donors demands?

      Would be interesting if the boil, that needs lancing, ends up being a battle between two NATO member states.

      Ironic, Geoffrey Pyatt, who was Ambassador to Ukraine, when Vicky Nuland was telling the EU to F*, is now stirring things up in Greece.

      • FlorianGeyer

        We have both long realised.AM, that the BBC is a Common Purpose media organisation and that Common Purpose is a melange of competing Bolshevik, Marxist ideologies bonded by Zionism.

        The lanced NATO boil will exude even more infection than the Corono virus ever can, in my opinion.

        Once the NATO boil is lanced , a NATO lobotomy can proceed with the help of Russian and Chinese surgeons :)

      You are right, it is getting boring to wait for things, which have to happen any way. Merkel gave Erdogan yesterday 32Mil Euros to build up his ‘Coast Guard’, that they may transport more of his troops into Greece. There is no way around it – it will explode…

    • AM Hants

      Talking of the BBC, I bet them and there friends will also be ignoring this story:

      Two other articles that may or may not interest you, particularly the one from Vet Today, concerning Turkey taking over the White Helmets, if true. Ignore that, I cannot find the article, but, found another one, that I found interesting owing to the Scottish Freemason connection in the very long article.

      • FlorianGeyer

        For Turkey to have supplied 400ltrs of Sarin obviously means that Turkey has Sarin stocks.
        For a NATO country to have been exposed in this way is a massive event politically and the White Helmets plot to murder Muricans in a false flag Snuff Movie would be funny if it was not so serious.

        WW3 is dangerously near and one successful US Coalition of Terror false flag could trigger war. .

        • AM Hants

          Didn’t Turkey provide the CWs, courtesy Benghazi, back in 2012, when they were trying to blame it on Syria?

          Funny, how they seem to mimic the actions of Israel, as the USS Liberty comes to mind, with regards blaming others for their own actions.

          Wonder if we will make it to 2021? There again, thought we would never make it to 2015, when everything kicked off in Ukraine and I am still stuck on the forums, via some sort of Groundhog Day.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Yes, I believe that Turkey was the supplier in in 2012.
            I agree that the NATO strategy in Syria has been very jewish in character.

            One can understand why the jews have been persecuted for over three thousand years :)

          • AM Hants

            I have just been reading a Tom Luongo article, over on Zero Hedge. For some reason, where nought made sense, it seemed clearer, whilst reading the article?

            Why would Russia agree to a ceasefire, with Syria’s permission?

            It also gives Syria a breather, plus chance to restock and swap around.

            With regards Russia having the evidence of the White Helmet false flag, where they took themselves out, how much horse trading can be done, when in possession of evidence and facts?

            The US have got no helpful friends in Syria, with only Turkey giving the a lending hand.

            The EU are cheesed off with the latest batch of human trafficking arrivals. But, considering what they have handed out funding the White Helmets, not that upset.

            The final countdown is almost here, but, those who are normally in control of the script, are losing in every direction. No leadership, in any of the groups, supporting the terrorists. So Syria, Russia, Iran and Hezb, sit back, glass of wine and popcorn, watching those that fund the White Helmets enter the hysterical, freak out stage, and dire comedy that goes with it.

            Nothing makes sense, because the Globalists are panicking, with single digit IQs steering the ship of chaos.

            Might be wrong though.

  • CHAOS

    They’re not bringing in police, they’re bringing in military personnel. Special ops, these are people who have fought against terrorism. They are experts in terms of operation, not operation as a front. People who can live on the mountain, who can last a long time.

  • AM Hants

    Interesting and is it true, that White Helmets are now under Turkey’s control? Veteran’s Today sourced.

    Anybody hear about the White Helmets filming the latest CW video, over in Idlib? Only they handled the CW cannisters incorrectly and the White Helmets became casualties of their own making. Russia Today sourced the story.

    So Turkey is sending special forces and NATO funded White Helmets to Greece. Whilst the other NATO member, Greece, with Geoffrey Pyatt, the US Ambassador to Greece and good friend of Nuland running the show, if Ukraine is anything to go by, are sending their special forces to their border.

    So how is the Atlantic Council Think Tank going to handle the latest script? Two NATO members having a hissy fit? How will it end? Luxemburg Forces, acting as negotiators?

    • FlorianGeyer

      We are now witnessing the second stage of the greatest Falling Out Amongst Thieves slugfest ever I think, AM.

      The first stage being the US ‘tariff’s on her vassals.

      The third stage will be the hot phase of internecine conflict within NATO I hope.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Turkey needs to be liberated from Erdogan. Erdogan is worst arrogant terrorists President serving Turkey. Erdogan created problems in Syria invading as he feel and killing Kurds and Syrians,arming terrorists inside Syria and openly attacking Syria forces.Again Erdogan is instigating terrorism in Libya openly arming foreigners in Sovereign Libya. Erdogan arrested own soldiers for his fake coup.Now Erdogan is openly forcing Refugees to Openly illegally penetrating Greek borders with force and threat.Nato help Turkey populations to remove Erdogan
    Putin should that Dog what’s happening on Turkey Greek border.

    • AM Hants

      Henry Kissinger ‘He who controls Crete, Cyprus and Malta, controls the world’.

      Wasn’t Henry Kissinger besides being heavily involved in the Greater Israel Project, also part of the script, that allowed Turkey to occupy Cyprus, under the guise of Operation Gladio?

      Now everything is being exposed, no part the reason for the GIP hysteria.

      Funny how many nations fund and support Al Qaeda’s medical unit, The White Helmets, and the same nations, also fund the OPCW joint mechanism, working against Syria.

      White Helmet Funding

      USAID via US State Department – $23 million (2014-2015)
      UK Foreign Officer – $24 million (2014-2015)
      EU – $4.5 million (2015)
      Netherlands – $4.5 million (2016)
      UK Foreign Office – $32 million (2016)

      Jo Cox Foundation – $2.4 million (2016)

      2014 – 2017 funding was at least $123 million +++

      Who are DG Echo?

      Directorate-General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations – guess that comes under the guise of the EU.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Well researched ,AM.

      • ypovalkanios_katimas

        yea Kissinger was behind Cyprus invasion… there are declassified documents that prove it . Also in Cyprus, Brits and UN helicopters were spotting Greek positions and after half an hour Turkish artillery was shelling them on their trenches.

  • Georgios

    Under these facts which happaned now, I am obliged to believe that all refuges concetrations in Lybia and Turkey, has been done in purpose with the support of Soros and Turkey’s government. They knew from the beggining that acting as imperialists, they could blackmail the west, using immigrands as a weapon.

    • But you still consider the broader picture. Without the wars in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and especially Libya, the wave of migrants of the years 2013-today never could have happened. These wars were not started by Turkey, in spite of Turkey exploiting the crisis that followed these interventions.

      • AM Hants

        But, why do so many of the migrants come from African nations, not connected to the ME and also Pakistan and various nations bordering the Caspian Sea?

        There again, why are so many White Helmet members, citizens of those nations and not forgetting the EU members, home grown Jihadis.

        • George King

          Via Muslim Brotherhood terrorist in Libya has been the transit route for Africa…..

          • AM Hants

            Cheers, wondered why so much of Africa ended up queuing for the human trafficker cruises from Libya to Europe.

        • Gaddafi blocked Migration through his country, he had several agreements with Italy and other EU-states. NATO destroyed its own anti-migration shield.

          Edit: The information f.e. that the EU does not defend its boarder, and that Merkel in Germany granted asylum to everybody, that information went around the world, and thousands of poeple thought to try it….

          • AM Hants

            NATO and human trafficking, no wonder they were cheesed off with Gadaffi. That is before they got to the gold.

      • Georgios

        Correct, this is also happened. But one very important factor that Turkey has so many muslims from many different nations, is that Turkey has stop asking visa from any muslim country. Thus, the gathering of these people – today illiegal immigrants – became an easy job. And without cost for Turkey. EU is paying for them.

    • AM Hants

      Which reminds me of this old article. Sorass and his human trafficking groups.

    In other words Turkey is forcibly expelling refugees into Greece!
    Why are the refugees so unhappy in Turkey? Isn’t the erdogan regime treating it’s “muslim brothers and sisters” well enough??! The hypocrisy is immense here!

    • FlorianGeyer

      Refugees in Turkish care are sooooo grateful for their happy existence that they donate their body organs to Erdogan.
      Even their hearts :)

  • Peter Jennings

    The Turkish admin are using a failing foreign policy machine because it keeps backfiring.

    Erdogan is obviously so concerned about the ‘refugees’ that he is willing to force them all into a kind of deadly purgatory until the Greek admin relents and allows those who survive to cross the border.

    Are these the actions of a EU member? an EU who pride themselves in their ‘humanitarian’ efforts.
    Perhaps i missed something?

  • goingbrokes

    OMG – EU is actually shedding the open borders! They are sending hundreds of millions to Greece to keep the border solid! Wow! Soros will be furious, leftist liberals will gnash their teeth. Go Greece, you are the wall now. You could ask a donation from President Trump!

    • Ziønist šhill

      I hope that last part was sarcastic. Americans never even got their wall.

        Of course I was being sarcastic. However, Arizona section of the completed wall has reduced illegal immigration 99%.

    Greece has deployed 100s of policemen and army units while additional reenforcements are being sent constantly on the border. now Turkey sends special forces as well.. it has aimed and sometimes forced people to cross the border. police units throw dozens of cannisters with tear gas against the Greek police !!! they are shooting smoke granades and tear gas over the border !they have even supplied the ‘refugees’ with launcers. now we are walking into a magor stand of. a small scale war is coming. an ‘accident’ will occur. a ‘refugee’ or a Greek policeman will die or even a turkish ‘martyr’. Then hell will break loose.

    • Kananda

      you should mount on autimatic heavy machine gauns reacting to movements. i am sure, nobody will try to cross the border.

      • χρηστος

        this is what Turkey wants. to win sympathyby appearing to help the people Greeks ‘kill’. it has many fake news on social media trying to convince the world about that. Turkey even has a video of a ‘dead’ Syrian refugee with so fake blood on his mouth that you must be a fool to believe that.

  • peter mcloughlin

    NATO-member Turkey risks confrontation with Russia over Idlib and fellow-NATO member Greece over immigrants crossing into Europe. No one is heeding the warning of history. We are quickly running out of ways to avoid world war three.
