More than 700 migrants and refugees have reached the Greek island of Kastelorizo over the past few days, since traffickers have found a passage on the island.

According to locals, the number of refugees and migrants that are on the island are 740, while the local community of Kastelorizo consists of about 200 people.

Among the 740 refugees, over 300 are women and children, while authorities monitoring the situation are not sufficient.

The accommodation that has been provided to the refugees and migrants by the local municipality are decent, but, it cannot host such a large number.

The volunteers are battling to ensure the best conditions for the refugees and according to information, many refugees will be transferred from Kastelorizo to Rhodes.
