Military boat on patrol on the Tisza

The Hungarian armed forces, in co-operation with the police, have deployed a patrol boat on the Tisza river from January 13 to prevent migrants from unlawfully crossing the border, the Defence Ministry announced.

It said illegal border entrants are attempting to cross Hungary’s border on the Tisza and the Holt-Tisza rivers in large numbers by means of boats and other vessels.

For that reason, the National Police requested assistance from the armed forces.
