Lesbos residents clashed with police on Tuesday, February 25, to protest the construction of a migrant center on the island. Around 500 protesters blocked the construction site before police reinforcement dispersed the residents using tear gas and stun grenades. Similar incidents are possible on Lesbos over the near term.
A heightened security presence and transportation disruptions are likely over the coming hours.
Individuals on Lesbos are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
