Greek media revealed that the Greek authorities have installed two electronic devices in the border area with Turkey that produce a loud noise that can cause deafness, to be used against asylum seekers.

On Thursday, the media reported that the Greek government had installed two mobile devices in the Merij border area, capable of emitting powerful sound waves to prevent asylum seekers from entering the country.

Media reports added that the two Long Range Acoustic Devices (LRADs), which are capable of producing extremely loud bomb sounds, were handed over to security forces operating in the Greek-Turkish border area.

Four drones, 15 thermal cameras, five Zodiacs vessels and ten armored patrol vehicles (APV) were also integrated into the border surveillance system.

Greece also began building a new fence across its northeastern border with Turkey to prevent irregular migrants from entering the country, the Anadolu Agency.
