Turkish Coast Guard Rescues Irregular Migrants Pushed Back B

The Turkish Coast Guard Command on Tuesday saved 73 irregular migrants who were forcibly pushed into Turkish territorial waters.

The persistent violation of humanitarian values and international law by Greece has sparked global condemnation and raised concerns about the safety and well-being of vulnerable migrants.

The Turkish Coast Guard swiftly responded to distress calls and dispatched teams to the coast of Ayvacık in the northwestern Çanakkale province.

Acting on the received information about irregular migrants on a rubber boat, the Coast Guard Command successfully rescued 48 foreign nationals from Yemen, Syria, and Palestine.

This incident sheds light on the ongoing struggles faced by migrants seeking refuge and a better life.

The Turkish government, along with global rights groups, has repeatedly voiced its concerns over Greece's illegal practice of pushing back migrants, emphasizing the need to uphold humanitarian values and respect international law.
