At least 12 irregular migrants were found frozen to death in northwestern Turkiye after they were pushed back from neighboring Greece, the Turkish interior minister said on Wednesday.

Twelve of 22 migrants "pushed back" by Greek border forces and stripped of their clothes and shoes "have frozen to death," Suleyman Soylu said on Twitter.

Soylu shared several photos of the site where the irregular migrants were found, with the victims blurred.

The EU "is remediless, weak and void of humane feelings," said Soylu, adding that while Greek forces acted as a "thug" against people who had been made "victims," they were tolerant towards members of the Fetullah Terrorist Organization, which was behind a 2016 defeated coup in Turkiye.

Thousands of the terror group's members fled to Greece after the coup attempt on July 15, 2016, which was orchestrated by FETO and its ringleader Fetullah Gulen. It left 251 people martyred and 2,734 injured.
