A group of migrants was arrested by Polish officers after they destroyed a section of border fence and forced their way into the country this week.
The incident unfolded on Wednesday morning near Usnarz Górny, a Polish village on the border with Belarus.
"About six people threw several logs of wood at the border security. The migrants threw stones in the direction of the Border Guard and Army officers, and their actions were assisted by Belarusian service officers. Additional Border Guard, Polish Army and Police patrols were directed to the area," the Polish Border Guard explained in a statement.
At least 16 migrants ultimately forced their way across the border, some wielding axes and knives.
"Direct coercive measures including gas were used against migrants destroying border security," the Border Guard said.
The illegal aliens were quickly rounded up and returned to the Belarusian side of the border.
Nearly 23,000 illegal border crossings have been thwarted by Polish authorities so far this year, including 11,300 in the past three weeks alone.
The substantial uptick in migrant traffic came after Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko threatened to allow aliens and drugs to flood Europe amid fraying diplomatic ties with the E.U. earlier this year.
The Polish parliament recently passed laws that would allow border agents to quickly eject illegal aliens, even if they attempt to claim asylum.
Lawmakers also gave the green light for construction of a new high-tech physical barrier along the border with Belarus and other measures to prevent mass migration into the country.
