- GENERAL: Macedoina started to build a fence on Greece border to enforce current rule that only people from Syria, Iraq and Afhganistan are being allowed to cross border to many balkan states. Others (Cca 10%-15% according to the latest November numbers from UNHCR) are being held. This separation starts in Idomeni and continues to be applied up to Slovenia. We are confirming about the further development, as this seems that many other nationalities remained stranded in Greece.
- PREŠEVO - Presevo had about 4000 people today, situation calm and normal. Started to rain in the evening. Boots, socks, jackets, blankets needed.
