Poland’s police: Belarus servicemen try to blind Polish border guards with strobe lights, lasers

On December 2, irregular migrants made another attempt to illegally cross the Belarusian-Polish border, Poland’s police said on Twitter on Friday.

The incident happened in Hajnówka County (Podlaskie Voivodeship).

“In the evening, officers and soldiers who were thwarting an attempt to cross the border between Opaka and Wólka-Terechowska were blinded with strobe lights and lasers used by Belarusian servicemen, ” the statement said.

It is not the first time that the Belarusian military have tried to dazzle Polish border guards with laser beams and bright lights; according to the Polish side, the Belarusians destroy the border fence at night from time to time, trying to help illegal migrants enter the territory of Poland.

It should be recalled that OSAM, the special force of the Belarusian border troops, is included in the EU’s 5th sanctions package adopted on December 2 for their contribution to facilitating the migration crisis on the EU borders.
