On March 6th, a video was shared on social media showing Turkish security forces use an armored vehicle, with a rope to pull down the fence at the Greek border and allow migrants to pass.
The vehicle, according to Greek media is one of the HIZIR / ATES type vehicles with daytime and nighttime border surveillance vehicles, which Turkey received from May to August 2019, financed by a program for which 75% were paid for the EU.
Furthermore, Turkish special police operations units were shown pointing their high-powered rifles at the Greek border patrol cars.

Send a couple of anti tank missiles to end that stunt.
Drop ordinance on them.
How Turkey is considered a part of NATO (an orginazition that the U.S. needs to leave and restructure) is beyond me. We need to get our military out stat.
If they are illegal aliens rushing the border they are NOT migrants.
They are invaders. Jihad by migrations.
That is an act of war.
Sounds like between the virus and Turkey acting up, Greece has decided that their experiment in being ‘woke’ has pretty much run its course.
Forget the casus, it’s bellum, full stop. Or do they have to wait until Greeks die, first?
Erdy is busy rebuilding the Caliphate. Tanks in Greece and Syria, special forces and jihadists and Libya.
Something stinks to high heaven and nobody says a word to object. More so, NATO is thi king out how to protect the Turks from the Syrian military (in Syria).
It is just crazy and nobody pays attention.
The Greek military is about 40-50% of the size of Turkey’s. It is tough to declare war against a much larger opponent.
That is certainly what I thought when I first saw it.
Article 5. Who said it is not working if the aggressor is a NATO country too?
With thousands dead across the border in Italy to the virus the last thing they need is a horde of a million smelly sand diggers.
theres probably an ordinance against pulling down Greek border fences. maybe they should make arrests.
its an invasion.....
“why this is not an act of war?”
The most likely alibi is that this was not official National policy, but rather the misguided unauthorized actions of a few individuals - perhaps even criminal acts.
The most likely cover would be an endless”investigation” of some kind, with a bunch of Diplomatic happy talk.
In the mean time, the underlying messaging is that Turkey is pushing Greece around like a bully, under the assumption that they dare not fight back.
Sounds like an act of war to me.
“The Greek military is about 40-50% of the size of Turkeys. It is tough to declare war against a much larger opponent.”
Worse odds have been overcome, especially by a determined defender. Turkey has to defend a lot of frontier areas facing other potential hostile neighbors. Turkey is also engaged in combat operations inside Syria.
If Europe doesn’t want an influx of a million more migrants, then they ought to send their own forces to help stop the invasion, and not expect Greece to be able to do it alone.
Has the EU told the Greeks to stand down yet?
