Skirmishes broke out on Wednesday evening as the police resisted the latest attempt by the migrants to force their way into Croatian territory.
It was reported on Thursday by the Bosnian police, which have been deployed in mass at the border, alongside Croatian ones on the other side of the border. This is a fresh attempt to break through, after a previous one on Wednesday.
The migrants threw stones and other objects at the police, who briefly charged at them to push them back.
The tension on the Bosnia-Croatia border remained high on Thursday between police and migrants who want to enter Croatia to continue their journey towards other EU countries.
Bosnian media report that during the night the migrants waited in the “no-man’s-land” near the border crossing, lighting fires to keep themselves warm. Groups of children and youths are regularly sent out towards the police cordon to chant “Open border, open border”.
Placards and banners shown by the illegals carry slogans with “EU, where are you?” and “We do not want the war”.
Police numbers have noticeably been stepped up on the Croatian side of the border and in recent hours Croatian interior minister Davor Bozinovic discussed the situation with his Bosnian counterpart Dragan Mektic.
Although the migration crisis in the German media has been systematically downplayed, thousands of illegal immigrants are still heading for Germany. On social media the country is even being mocked as “Ger-money”.
The mass invasion from Africa and the Middle East is constantly finding new alternative routes. The new focal point is Bosnia-Herzegovina and its border with Croatia.
This development is not reported in the German media. Only two North Rhine-Westphalian AfD politicians Roger Beckamp and Matthias Helferich have drawn attention to the new Balkan route.
