Belarusian forces 'destroy border fence to allow migrant crossings', claims Polish Defence Ministry

Telegraph, 16 Nov 2021
The Polish Ministry of Defence has released video which it claims shows Belarusian forces destroying a fence on the border between the two countries.

The video was posted on its official Twitter account, which claims the Belarusian services were assisting illegal border crossings of migrants into Poland.

Thousands of migrants remained stranded at Belarus' border with Poland on Monday as the European Union agreed to slap further sanctions on the former Soviet nation.

Amid the crisis, Poland has also reinforced its side of the frontier with 15,000 soldiers, in addition to border guards and police.
