Violent and racist attacks against migrants and asylum-seekers, including Palestinian refugees, have skyrocketed on the Greek island of Chios.
Human rights sources quoted migrants as stating that a Palestinian refugee sustained leg injuries and was transferred to the hospital after a Greek national hit him with his motorcycle.
Incidents of racist violence have been increasingly reported among Palestinian refugees and other asylum seekers in Greece.
Greece has seen a massive influx of migrants since 2015, with thousands of people from war-torn countries like Syria seeking safety there. They either cross the Aegean Sea to get to the small southeast European country or its land border with Turkey.
