According to the NGOs present at the scene, at least 15 people would have been injured following the police intervention, including 9 children.

UPDATE: We have treated 15 patients including 9 kids with respiratory issues and 7 including 3 kids for injuries from the fences.

Since a week ago that Skopje has been reducing the number of daily entries in the country, when only 10 people crossed the border from Idomeni line since Sunday.

A situation that increases the number of migrants in Idomeni line, when Greece fears more than 70 1000 people can be held in the country in March, when Austria, Croatia and Slovenia, decided to also slow the flow of entries in the country.
