Around 6,500 migrants have been rescued off Libya, according to the Italian coastguard, in one of its biggest co-ordinated operations in recent years.

Images showed migrants wearing life jackets jumping off one of their boats into the Mediterranean and swimming toward rescuers.

The Italian coastguard said Monday’s operations included vessels from humanitarian organisations as well as the EU’s border agency Frontex.

The rescue comes just a day after around 1,100 migrants, mostly from Somalia, were saved from the Strait of Sicily.

Migrants from Eritrea are seen on an overcrowded wooden vessel during a rescue operation by the Spanish NGO Proactiva, off the Libyan coast in Mediterranean Sea

That group was found on eight rubber dinghies, one large boat and two punts.

Over the past year, 105,342 migrants have reached Italy by boat, most of them setting off from Libya.

Many are fleeing from violence and poverty and are desperate enough to risk the sailing on dangerously small and unsuitable vessels.

An estimated 2,726 people have died over the same period, according to the International Organisation for Migration.

Someone is supplying these turds in life jackets with boats. The boat suppliers need to be arrested and the boats sunk before they can leave port.

Rescued Africans need to be returned to their point of departure.

All European rescue vessels should be ordered to remain in port. Vessels operating along Europe’s coasts ought to be empowered to sink intruding vessels.

Europe does not need parasitic Africans. The contribute nothing but crime, disease, and stress.

  1. Fleeing war and poverty? Nonsense, they are paying people smugglers thousands for their travel across land and passage mid way to Italy where the boat is punctured and the coast guard is called, then they are left to their own devices. This has been standard practice for years, like you say PJ, rescue them, sink the boats and return them to Libya.

  2. I’m thinking it would be great if one could rally Lybians to stop migration through their country.

    You can think what you want about Lybians, but I’m sure they are getting tired of Sub-Saharan africans coming through, as they have much higher crime rates than native Lybian populations.

    By the way, what the hell Italian Navy(or Italian Smuggling Service) is doing in Lybian waters?

    This is how it works:
    1. smugglers know Italian Navy will try to help ‘poor refugees’

    2. they purposely overcrowd those boats to make if more dangerous and push Italian navy to intervene closer to Lybian coast. If it’s not done, navy will get trouble from different ‘human rights’ activists and politicians trying to show off how nice and emphatetic people they are.

    3. Smugglers just have to get it few miles off Lybia rather than all(or half) the way, which makes it much harder to catch smugglers. Most smugglers are complicit in other criminal activities including human trade. I won’t be too surprised if men-women ratio gets skewed few percent by the fact that many women smuggled reach a different destination they hoped for. If you know what I mean.

    It puts ‘refugees’ at extra risk of drowning or getting sold, so even if someone is into ‘poor refugees’ narrative they should be against smugglers and Italian Navy pretty much enabling them. Assuming ‘poor refugees’ people prefer practical solutions, rather than “helping” to show off.

    A bit chaotic writing by me(not native speaker), but hopefully you get the idea.

  3. Just put some shells in those boats or send them back once you rescue them. There’s no reason to allow them in the EU. No wonder merkel keeps sucking turkey’s cock when we’re this cowardly to protect our nation. No countries can exist if no one defends their right to exist. And the people make a country, not government or whatever else. These so called immigrants are just invaders who want to destroy it, either through miscegenation or superior numbers. You can’t call britain british when most of it’s population aren’t even native british.
