Video shows broken section of Polish border fence

Polish Border Guard said that on Tuesday (November 23) evening around 7pm, 100 migrants tried to force their way into Polish territory.

Crossing attempts also occurred at the Polish border section near Mielnik where a group of 40 migrants tried to make passage.

Thousands of people stranded on the European Union's eastern border represent an attempt by Belarus to destabilize the bloc, rather than a migrant crisis, and as such call for a coordinated response, the head of EU executive said on Tuesday (November 23).

Ursula von der Leyen told the European Parliament the 27-nation bloc was standing in solidarity with Poland, Lithuania and Latvia, who are bearing the brunt of what the EU says is President Alexander Lukashenko's ploy to engineer a crisis by flying migrants into Belarus and then pushing them across EU borders.
