On Tuesday, November 16, a group of migrants in Belarus attacked the Polish military again. Illegal migrants used noise grenades and stones. As a result of the clash, a Polish serviceman was injured and hospitalized with serious injuries, Polskie Radio and the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Poland report.

On Tuesday, the situation on the Polish border worsened. The illegal migrants again attempted to break through the Polish border. During the clashes, foreigners began throwing noise grenades at the Polish military. According to the Polish Ministry of Defense, grenades could have been provided to migrants by Belarusian law enforcement officers.

"The migrants were armed with stun grenades from the Belarusian services, and they began throwing them at Polish soldiers and officers," the statement reads.

One of the Polish security forces was injured in the attack. He was hospitalized with a severe head injury.

In addition, it is reported that in the morning a group of men cut a hole in the Belarusian fence and rushed with sticks to the fence on the Polish side, trying to break it. Then the migrants attacked the Polish security forces with stones and bottles. In response, the military used gas and a water cannon.

According to the press service of the Polish police, the Belarusian security forces do not react to the aggression of migrants.

As you know, Eastern Europe is currently experiencing a migration crisis. Illegal migrants who have arrived in Belarus are trying to break through the border into Poland and then into Germany.

At the same time, the Polish authorities concentrated about 12,000 soldiers on their border, who are in a state of combat readiness. The Polish government later pushed another 3 thousand soldiers to the border.

However, migrants from Belarus do not go anywhere and from time to time storm the Polish border. Thus, on November 14, a group of 50 migrants broke through from Belarus to the territory of Poland near the village of Stazhyn.
