A large increase in the numbers of incoming migrants has been observed during 2018, Greek news outlet Voice of Europe reports.

Statistics of the Hellenic Police of Thessaloniki say that in August 1,138 migrants and refugees were identified while 1,157 were found in Evros during the same month.

The number of migrants in Thessaloniki reached the same level from last April, when the biggest migratory wave of the past years had been recorded at the Greek-Turkish land borders.

According to Protothema, the cost of illegals crossing the border is 2000 euros per migrant, as human traffickers have managed to find ways to penetrate police blockades.
