Dunkirk migrant camp devastated by fire as fight breaks out between Afghans and Kurds

A migrant camp in Dunkerque was devastated by a fire on Monday night, as two rival gangs turned on each other, with police firing volleys of tear gas to separate the groups.

At least three people were injured in the brawl, which was said to be between Afghan and Kurdish migrants.

Police fired 21 tear gas canisters to break up the battle at the Grande Synthe camp, home to an estimated 1,200 migrants outside the town. A fire broke out around 9pm, and within two hours much of the camp was destroyed, French press reported. Photos on social media showed buildings ablaze in the night sky.

    LOL… at what point will it dawn on the big shots that these people will never integrate, never contribute, never become law abiding, never keep their paws off your women, never work… and so bring ’em on in!

      But will they vote. That and the virtue signalling are all that matters.

    Almost 80 years ago, in Dunkirk, the Germans were fighting the Brits. Now, the Afghans are fighting the Kurds. Very telling about the demise of the white civilization. We are witnessing history in the making.

      And what the hell are Kurds and Afghans doing at Dunkirk?

        They refuse to claim asylum in France, clinging to a dream of reaching Britain.

          They refuse to claim asylum in France because if they did they would be obligated to stay there until their claim is processed. They want to get to the UK because they think the streets are paved with gold there.

            Some are paved with the gold of the pedestrians run over by other Muslims.

    Funny how these tribal battles are portable and come along as part of the foreigner package.

    Deport the lot of them. Negative reinforcement does wonders.

    Why did the police even try to intervene?

      I think they went in there looking to surrender

    It may be too much to hope for that the authorities let the camp lie in ruins and tell its populace to go find somewhere else to squat, preferably outside of France.

    • Editor

      Way too much to hope. The camp will be rebuilt, at taxpayer expense and dozens of mostly British NGOs will bitch and moan until it happens.

    Why are they wasting precious water?
