Belarusian law enforcers destroy border fence and give tear gas to migrants, Polish side claims

According to the Polish Border Guards, the Belarusian law enforcers provided the migrants with tear gas.

Polish Border Guard Service claims that the Belarusian military began to destroy the border fence at night: they ripped up poles and tore the barbed wire. Polish border guards were blinded with laser beams and bright lights.

Meanwhile, a group of about 100 migrants was waiting nearby, getting ready to cross the border illegally. The Belarusian military handed out tear gas to the migrants, who used it against the Polish border guards, the Border Guard Service reports. But this and subsequent attempts to get into the Polish side were unsuccessful.
