In the report, A1 aired statements of the inhabitants of the villages near Lerin, a town situated in the Aegean part of Macedonia.

Ten days ago, the Greek Army pulled out from the temporary camp located in the vicinity of the village of Zabrdeni, however, Greek military forces have been re-deployed in the area today.

The local population tried to prevent the troops to carry out exercises in the vicinity of the village, which was followed by an intervention of the special units of the Greek police.

"They have been arresting people. Until now, they took in four, and they are set to take more before the nightfall," a Macedonian living in Lerin area told A1 TV.

According to the same source, the locals of Macedonian nationality are still present at the access road leading to the Greek army's camp.

Neither local inhabitants nor the local deputies, who made a request at the Greek Parliament to from last week to stop the military activities as they caused disturbance among the citizens living in this part of Greece, were informed about the activities of the Greek army and police.
