Fourth night followed by migratory pressure in Melilla, first with the Army deployed

Melilla is living the fourth consecutive night of migratory pressure in its border perimeter, the first with the Army deployed to reinforce surveillance and control.

The Government Delegation in Melilla has confirmed that, faced with this situation, the intrusion device had to be activated, which is acting at the moment, in which members of the Civil Guard, the National Police and the Local Police, in addition to the Army, participate.

Unlike the last two nights, where entry attempts could be thwarted, on the night of this Thursday, part of those who have managed to approach the border perimeter have been able to access at different points, according to police sources.

The images of people running through Melilla after jumping the fence have been viralized in the city.

For now there is no official confirmation from the Government Delegation on the number of people that could have entered.

It’s about the fourth consecutive night of migratory pressure in Melilla, the first of which took place at dawn on Tuesday and resulted in the entry of 80 migrants of sub-Saharan origin at 4.45 am, who managed to skirt the South Dike in an attempt of more than 300.

The second attempt was on Tuesday at 11:40 p.m., also in the same area and they participated 40 immigrants, although none of them could enter.

A hundred Moroccans

The last one had occurred at dawn yesterday, in which about a hundred people of Moroccan origin participated through the area between the Río de Oro and Mariguari, which was thwarted by the actions of Spanish and Moroccan agents.

Instead, the delegation in Melilla of the Unified Police Union (SUP) stated on Twitter that it was “hundreds of young Moroccans” those who “have jumped the fence” and posted a short video of the attempted entry.

In the images, several people are seen next to the border perimeter, in a section equipped with the inverted combs installed by the Ministry of the Interior to waterproof the border.
