The Polish Border Guard reported on Monday that illegal migrants staged an assault on the Belarusian border, injuring two Polish soldiers.
“Over the weekend, two attempts of a border assault were recorded. Aggressive groups of about 60 and 70 people threw stones and branches at the border guard officers and soldiers of the Polish army. Two soldiers were hospitalised. Both attempts of violent crossing into Poland were thwarted”, Polish Border Guard said in a statement.
In recent months, Poland, as well as Latvia and Lithuania, have reported a huge wave of migrants trying to cross into the EU from Belarus. Warsaw has announced an emergency on the border and deployed nearly 6,000 extra soldiers there amid the crisis.
