Sinking of 5 Refugees and saving 83 others off Lesbos Island in Aegean Sea.

In Greece, the coastguards announced, yesterday, the sinking of five refugees including three children between Turkey and Greece in the Aegean Sea while trying to immigrate to Europe. The Greek police said they had managed to rescue 83 refugees off the island of Lesbos, noting that searching operations still ongoing southeast of the Aegean to find the missing people.

Previously in this month; the Greek Coastguard announced on 12 December that the 11 refugees, including two children and five women died, and 13 others were missing, after the sinking of their wooden boat in the outskirts of Farmakonisi Greek Island in the Aegean Sea, while the Greek police said that they had rescued 26 of the boat passengers.

In the context, the Turkish Coastguard, earlier, pulled out the bodies of three victims drowned in the same area; two Iraqi children and an unknown man.

Dogan news agency said the two children aged six years and two years were wearing life-jackets, and their bodies were floating in the Aegean Sea off the Sisme area (west) in front of the Greek Island of Kos.

It is worth mentioning that the Turkish coasts are considered to be the starting point for hundreds of boats carrying refugees fleeing the war in Syria towards Europe. Thousands of Palestinian refugees launched their trips from that beach to get to Greece or Italy.
