On Friday morning, more than 150 illegal migrants managed to break through the border fence which divides Morroco from Spain’s North African enclave of Ceuta, El País reports.

Official sources say that the number of illegal migrants who attempted to scale the fence and cross over into Spanish territory was even higher, but only about 150 were able to make it past the double fence, which stands six meters tall plus barbed wire, and is 8.4 kilometers long,

According to the Spanish newspaper which cites figures from the national health authorities, at least 11 Civil Guard officers were injured during the incident, while dozens of illegal migrants were hurt while trying to hop over the barbed wire.

The migrant’s rush over the fences “was conducted in a violent manner, with hand-to-hand confrontations [with officers] and using hooks, sticks, and acid,” the Civil Guard union AUGC said in a statement.

“This latest organized assault newly evidences the need for technical and human reinforcements in border cities, as AUGC has been demanding for years,” the statement continued.

Spain’s Europa Press news agency reported that the incident happened at 7:20 am local time close to the breakwater of the town of Benzu, precisely where the border fence terminates.

Spanish enclaves of Melilla and Ceuta in northern Africa – separated from mainland Spain by the Strait of Gibraltar – are common points of transit for African migrants looking to claim asylum EU.

In August of 2018, a similar but larger incident occurred in the same area which saw a group of 850 migrants break through the fence. Of that 850, about 602 made it to Spanish territory. Migrants employed sticks, sharp objects, makeshift blow torches, and quicklime to get past the officers. 32 guards were injured as a result of the violent border crossing.

  1. There is only 1 way to stop this BS — start a shoot to kill policy. It won’t take long before they decide it is not worth it.

  2. Africans fleeing Africa, hum, I wonder how these ungrateful 666bastards666 living off the tax payers in America would survive; getting to live here is privilege you LOSERS.

  3. More ACCRATE STATEMENT would be they are destroying every country they chose to invade!!!!

  4. I SAY PUT THE 40 THOUSAND TROOPS ON THE USA BORDER, SPREAD THEM OUT 20 TO THE MILE, HAVE THEM BUILD A TOWER 30 FT. HIGH, ARMED WITH A QUAD 50 CAL. MACHINE GUN, AND A BIG SEARCH LIGHT LIKE WE HAD IN KOREA, BACKED UP WITH A TANK AND AN ATTACK HELICOPER EVERY 5 MILES, WITH ORDERS TO SHOOT. THIS WILL CLOSE OUR BORDERS AND GIVE OUR TROOPS PROPER TRAINING.

  5. Exactly why we should be doing the same. Set up elevated shooting towers and shoot a any that cross. After a few get shot, the rest will honor the border!

  6. It IS an invasion when they come across the borders carrying their country’s flags.
    SHOOT EM AND THEY WILL GO HOME

  7. Against the actual photos of Benzu, Spain it seems to be located on the south side of the Straight of Gibraltor actually attached to Morocco and not physically attached to the country of Spain. My immediate thought is; why is Spain holding onto a settlement that doesn’t have a large enough military presence to actually protect illegal border crossings? Most of the actual land Bnzu is conected to directly attached to Morocco. I don’t know Spain’s history in occupying and owning this little section of Morocco,

  8. Those Invaders are war mongers. They want More land to grow poison. & destroy,
    as they did to their original home.
    We tried to plant food and feed the world,
    I believe we fed them to destroy the world
    Now who will help. Get rid of them invaders?

  9. I said that a year ago. Sniper towers. I also said they should change their country for the better

  10. Put a Bounty on these Maggots. They obviously don’t obey ANY laws so pay anyone 20.00 a head to blast them off the wall they are trying to scale or illegally bypass!! Once the word gets out that will stop them!!

  11. Look at your headline; a boarder is someone who pays rent and a BORDER is a boundary line! Someone needs to go back to school.

  12. How about firing ranges in the most crossed areas. It is fun to shoot at moving targets and great practice for ground war if we ever have another one, which I hope not.

  13. Walter Flatt, while we need all the support possible at our U.S. southern border, you do realize that this incident took place on Spain’s border and not the U.S./Mexican border, right? We are not the only country having problems with migrants.

  14. Moderation?. Please read some of the comments above and please explain to me how those passed the moderation test.
