The team is expected to arrive in mainland Greece by the end of the month, the source said. Its deployment is part of the “permanent cooperation between Greek authorities, their European counterparts and Europol” since Greece was hit by a massive influx of refugees and migrants in 2015 hoping to head to northern Europe, the source added.
