By 19 February 2020

ZAGREB, February 19, 2020 - A group of migrants entered the military range in Slunj on Monday and one of them, during an attempt to identify him, tried to escape, jumping from a cliff into a three-metre ravine, but was rescued by Croatian soldiers, the Defence Ministry said on Wednesday.

The soldiers administered first aid to the migrant who broke one leg, after which an ambulance took him to the Karlovac General Hospital, while the remaining six were turned over to Slunj police.

Croatian soldiers discovered the seven foreign nationals trespassing on the Eugen Kvaternik Military Range in the night between February 17 and 18, the ministry said.

A gravely injured Moroccan citizen has been brought to the Karlovac General Hospital from the Eugen Kvaternik Military Range, hospital director Ervin Jančić said earlier today.

Jančić told Hina the Moroccan with an upper leg fracture and a knee injury was brought to the hospital by police, underwent surgery and that his life was not in danger.
