*BREAKTHROUGH: ONLY 155 MIGRANTS ARRIVE ON GREEK ISLAND ON SUNDAY, A FRACTION OF 10,000 OR SO ARRIVING RECENTLY
*TURKEY STEPS UP SEA PATROLS

*EU COMMISSION ANNOUNCES THREE BILLION EUROS AIDE FOR SYRIAN REFUGEES IN TURKEY
*THE END OF THE GLOBALIST ENGINEERED MIGRANT CRISIS?
An international migration watchdog has reported a “drastic” drop-off in arrivals of migrants across the Mediterranean from Turkey to Greece over the weekend.
The International Organization of Migration said Tuesday that 155 migrants reached the Greek islands by sea on Sunday, calling that a “significant” decline in light of more than 100,000 arrivals in all of November.
IOM spokesman Joel Millman says an agency staffer in the region attributed the lower numbers to increased patrols by Turkish authorities in the last few days.
Hats off to the Turkish government! Turkey also has to carry a huge burden in keeping two million or more Syrian refugees on its territory. That is why every international effort now has to be made to stop Russia bombing civilian targets close to the Turkish border, which are increasing the number of people fleeing to Turkey.
The announcement by the European Commission that it will give three billion euros in aide to help keep Syrian refugees in Turkey is long overdue but a welcome step.
The next step is to create peace in Syria. Why not have a ceasefire and conduct a referendum and ask the Syrians in their own country and in camps what they want?
