Two migrant groups opened fire on each other on the streets of Horgos, a Hungarian town a couple of hundred metres south of the Hungarian-Serbian border. One of the migrants was hit on his chest, so the ambulance transferred him to the local hospital.
The violent events unfolded yesterday evening in the small Hungarian town of Horgos in Serbia. However, the armed conflict lasted until late at night, terrorizing the peaceful local community.
As surveillance camera footages show, hooded men armed with machine guns marched on Béla Bartók Street minutes before 6 PM, szmo.hu said.
In another video uploaded to a local Facebook group, you may hear the shootout. Below, you may watch the almost 1-minute-long footage taken from a bike or a motorcycle. There are multiple shots and a group of running men on it. Shockingly, the shootout happened near a kindergarten, which was, of course, closed in the evening.
Pannon RTV in Szabadka, the cultural and economic centre of the Hungarians living in Serbia, said a bloody vendetta happened between two migrant groups. The shootout started after sunset on Thursday.

A man in his twenties was shot in the chest during combat. Therefore, an ambulance transferred him to the hospital. The Serbian police reestablished order on the streets of Horgos by late at night, the TV channel added.
Here is another video of the shootout:
Based on local news, police officers and agents of the interior ministry are transferring the migrants taking part in the armed conflict today. According to local news outlets, police arrested more than 600 illegal migrants and even the interior minister arrived to Horgos today.
Here is a video about what the police do:
After a border fence was built on the Hungarian-Serbian border in 2015-2016, migrants cannot get through to enter Hungary (and the European Union). Therefore, large groups are stuck in the Northern regions of Serbia, and this was not the first time they were involved in brutal armed conflicts. We reported about the last similar case this July.
Horgos had a population of 5709 in 2011. 5302 of them (83.82%) were Hungarians. That is why we wrote Horgos is a Hungarian town which happens to be in Serbia.
