Igoumenitsa is a port of Epirus, from where many ships connect Italy and Greece. Due to this, trucks that travel by ship from Greece to Italy, become targets for immigrants and refugees, that are trapped in Greece. Their goal is to sneak into a truck until the boat sails to Italy.
A few days ago, immigrants from Pakistan tried to hide in the truck of a 37-year-old Greek, in order to get to Italy. Unfortunately for them, the driver found out what they were planning and tried to stop them.
All of a sudden, one of the immigrants managed to stab the Greek driver with a knife, injuring his hand. Although injured, the driver managed to reach the local hospital where first aid was applied.
The Greek ports of Patra and Igoumenitsa have become targets for thousands of immigrants and refugees, as they are literally the gates to Central Europe. Local societies become victims of violent scenes on a daily basis
