A liberal refugee-helper volunteer was shot in the face by a nonwhite invader during this week’s tribal warfare between Afghans and Sudanese in Calais’s “Jungle,” French news reports have revealed.
In addition, at least four other liberals, all working in the “Jungle,” and the “Doctors without Borders” offices were attacked during the rampage by the “peace-seeking refugees.”
At least one of the tribesmen—an Afghan—has been killed in the fighting, and another 40 hospitalized after the clashes broke out late this week. Sporadic fighting has continued into the weekend.
According to the French Sud Oest news service, hundreds of nonwhites took part in the mass brawl at the camp, but no one was quite sure as to the original cause.
The clashes, which started at around 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 26, had their origin in an incident of some sort which took place at the invader “visitor center” and then spread throughout the Jungle.
The office of the prosecutor in Boulogne-sur-Mer confirmed to the Sud Oest that among the wounded were liberal volunteers who had come to the camp to help the nonwhites.
At least five of the liberals were wounded in the violence, including one woman who was seriously injured after apparently receiving a gunshot wound to the face, the paper added.
At least 260 police officers and gendarmes were mobilized to restore calm, along with 70 firefighters, several doctors and nurses, eleven ambulances, and two fire engines.
One Ethiopian was badly burned by the arson attacks in the camp, suffering 70 percent burn wounds to his body. He was airlifted to the Lille University Hospital for treatment.
There are currently at least 5,000 nonwhite invaders living in the Jungle, despite the French government’s half-hearted attempts to move the hordes away.
The prefect of Pas-de-Calais, Fabienne Buccio, said during a press conference that “significant fighting” had taken place, and that although there had been clashes of that nature before, there had never been a flare-up like this.
Another building which was attacked was that of the “Doctors without Borders” clinic which was set up to provide free treatment for the nonwhites.
A thick column of smoke rose above the camp, and the smell of burning was noticeable in the center of Calais.
One eyewitness local resident told the La Voix du Nord newspaper that he had heard an “explosion at around 5 p.m., that sounded like a gunshot or a firing of tear gas, followed by screaming.”
At the same time, he saw hundreds of nonwhites leave the Jungle and head for the ring road.
“They seemed ready to fight. They collected rocks; they had iron bars. In the Jungle, thick smoke and flames rose into the sky. We see this violence every day, you know,” he added.
* Early on Saturday morning, a nonwhite invader was run over and killed by a truck as he was dragging large branches on the A16 in an attempt to slow traffic.
* Putting obstructions in the road has become a routine tactic by the invaders in their attempt to break into trucks and vehicles heading for Britain.
The dead invader, a 25-year-old Afghan, is the twenty-sixth such death recorded in Calais since June 2015.
