The Hellenic Coast Guard has assumed a considerable burden in patrol and rescue missions in the Eastern Aegean Sea, as a result of the increased flow of immigrants coming from the Turkish coasts. According to Greek Media sources, the Coast Guard has deployed most of its vessels (around 60 of them) to the area, during the last years, in an effort to address the issue.
