Turkey: Mass Deportations of Syrians


Human Rights Watch reports about Turkey's refugee policy at the Turkish-Syrian border. Thousands of asylum seekers who crossed the border have been deported to Idlib where they join 1,65 million other displaced Syrians. 

Turkey hosts more than 3.5 million Syrian refugees. The report suggests that Turkey's sacrifices need to be acknowledged but the EU should address the issues of deportations and border guards shooting at border-crossers. That includes the demand that the EU should support the Turkish refugee programs financially.
