“The situation in the #Idomeni area on the border between #Macedonia (FYROM) and #Greece is currently in a state of chaos, with 3,000 migrants and refugees being violently prevented by Macedonian troops from crossing the border. Tear gas has been used to disperse crowds, and there is widespread fear, panic and frustration among the people.
An #MSF mobile medical team is operating in the area. We received 10 people with wounds from stun grenades fired by Macedonian border troops. Four of those wounded by the grenades needed to be referred to hospital, one of whom was also wounded after being beaten by #FYROM army personnel. Six of the 10 had less serious injuries and could be treated on the spot. © Eloisa d’Orsi” By doctorswithoutborders on Instagram.
