Turkey: Thousands of migrants driven towards Greece
Hybrid warfare against Europe: Satellite images shows Turkey is again emptying its migrant centres and driving them to the coast.
Greece is bracing for an influx of migrants from Turkey after satellite images appeared to show that Ankara was releasing tens of thousands of refugees from its deportation centres.
Greek forces have been put on heightened alert, further undermining a migration deal that has failed to stop asylum seekers turning to Europe, government officials in Athens claim.
The mobilisation follows intelligence reports and satellite imagery showing refugee groups being moved from remote inland areas to Turkey’s western shores — regions traditionally used by traffickers to smuggle people to remote Greek islands kilometres away.
