The violent incidents carried out on Sunday between refugees in Idomeni and FYROM police has caused a new rise in tension between Greece and FYROM, while the situation in Idomeni remains volatile.

There are also fears of new clashes, since solidarity groups have called again the refugees to attempt to cross the borders on Tuesday morning.

According to information broadcast by TV channels, the solidarity groups which are in Idomeni have promised refugees to provide them with Molotov cocktails. This time, Greek police will try to prevent the refugees so as to avoid any clashes and putting human lives in risk in an area where there are still more than 12,000 refugees, including many children and women.

Meanwhile, authorities have already started to transfer the refugees and immigrants staying at passenger terminal of Piraeus port to Skaramagas. It is estimated that about 700 refugees accepted to be transferred to the refugee center, while more people will follow today.
