The immigration problem in Lesvos, Greece, seems to be out of control as the number of undocumented immigrants arriving on the island is constantly increasing.
Just on Saturday morning, around 100 inflatable boats reached the Greek island shores, carrying over 4,000 refugees.
The great influx of migrants continues to rise unabated, with the number of refugees today reaching nightmarish numbers.
The situation in Lesvos is “explosive” as its local residents suffocate seeing their island turning into a vast camp of undocumented immigrants.
One can see hundreds of refugees packed in squares and sidewalks, with women, children and elderly people even sleeping on the ground.
The local community expresses its frustration with mayor Spyros Galinos, blaming him for being a mere spectator to the current dreadful situation.
Brutal clashes on the island’s port
While several migrants were waiting outside the Greek Coast Guard offices in order to be documented, small groups clashed with each other, with the situation getting quickly out of control.
Many immigrants, in a state of rage, ripped the protective iron railings of the Port Authority and started fighting and chasing each other, transforming the area into a battlefield. At the same time, women, children and elderly people were running in panic in order to avoid the confrontation.
Two people involved in the incident were seriously wounded, while four others suffered minor injuries.
