“Millions Of Refugees Moving Toward EU” – Erdogan Vows ‘Doors’ Will Not Be Shut
Turkey has upped the ante in both Idlib — where its military is busy attacking Syrian government forces in a state of open war — and its stance toward Europe, after late last week making good on threats to ‘open the gates’ for refugees fleeing Syria’s war-torn northwest. But European leaders are standing by Greece and Bulgaria, saying the EU’s borders are shut.
Already over 35,000 refugees are reportedly at EU borders under watch of Turkish security which had been ordered last Friday to “stand down” while thousands try to force their way into Greece and Bulgaria, and make the dangerous drip in rubber boats across the Aegean. As we’ve detailed there’s a sense of chaos and panic at the borders, with Greece’s military response aggressively trying to keep migrants out.
“Millions of refugees” will soon be moving toward Turkey’s borders with the EU, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced in new provocative televised statements on Monday.
