PRESEVO – More than 1,900 refugees from the Middle East have been registered on Tuesday between midnight and 12:30 p.m. at the reception center in Presevo, southern Serbia.
A large number of men, women and children from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries have been arriving in Presevo non-stop over the past several days, and the trend is expected to continue.
“From midnight until now (around 12:30 p.m.), certificates have been issued to some 1,900 people, and the reception center in Presevo is now empty,” spokesman of the Commissariat for Refugees and Migration Ivan Miskovic told Tanjug.
The refugees at the reception center in Presevo have come from Macedonia through Miratovac, where a temporary tent camp has been set up to provide shelter and emergency medical assistance to those in need.
The registration process is being conducted by activists of the Red Cross, international relief organizations, and volunteers, along with the Presevo police.
