Following murder of Polish soldier, migrants launch increasingly aggressive attacks at the Polish border with Belarus


Over the weekend, large numbers of migrants attempted to cross the Polish-Belarusian border, including 150 on Saturday alone. Authorities are becoming increasingly concerned, as more and more of them are willing to use force against border guards and soldiers, which in turn requires authorities to deploy more forceful measures to stop them.

During the attacks, border guards are being bombarded with projectiles, including stones and tree branches. This comes after migrants murdered a Polish soldier during an attack earlier this month.


The death of private Mateusz Sitek, a soldier from the 1st Warsaw Armored Brigade who was pronounced dead last week, has raised anxiety among Poles over whether the soldiers and guards on the border are fully equipped, authorized to use weapons, and trained to handle the situation.
