Turkey Greece Migrants

Afghan migrants watch from inside a life raft during a rescue operation by the Turkish coast guard, in the Aegean Sea, between Turkey and Greece, Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020. Turkey is accusing Greece of large-scale pushbacks at sea ? summary deportations without access to asylum procedures, in violation of international law. The Turkish coast guard says it rescued over 300 migrants “pushed back by Greek elements to Turkish waters” this month alone. Greece denies the allegations and accuses Ankara of weaponizing migrants.
