Küplü, Turkey – Refugees and Migrants deported by Greece, and threatened with freezing have been rescued by the Turkish military.

A group of irregular refugees and migrants who were taken by Greece and tried to be deported to Turkey illegally by violent means have been saved from freezing, the Ministry of National Defense has announced.

“A group of irregular refugees and migrants, whose phones and money were taken by Greece and tried to be deported to Turkey illegally by violence, were rescued from the frozen area where they were stranded and handed over to the Gendarmerie Command of Meriç District in Edirne,” the Ministry of National Defense said in a statement.

Greece systematically confiscates the financial and valuable assets of refugees and migrants, leaving them to die in the Meriç (Evros / Maritsa) River. The EU (Frontex) stands by the inhumane persecution and torture of Greece.
