French authorities announced today that 342 migrants who set off from France in an attempt to reach Britain on makeshift boats have been rescued off the Badou-Calais Strait in the English Channel.

And the French press agency quoted the Regional Monitoring and Operations Center as saying in a statement today that many boats are facing difficulties north of Padou-Calais, noting that a French Navy patrol ship rescued 95 people from drowning and rescue teams off the coasts of Calais, Dunkirk and Boulogne in northern France rescued 121 people.

And the British Home Office announced that the United Kingdom rescued 1,115 migrants who crossed the Channel on small boats last Friday and Saturday, as crossings across the Channel towards the United Kingdom have been increasing since the end of 2018, despite repeated warnings from the authorities stressing the danger of this type of migration due to the intensity of movement Traffic, strong currents and low water temperature.

French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said during his visit to the region that interception of illegal immigration boats had increased in the past three months from 50 percent to 65 percent.
