Human rights activists: Turkish border guards killed five Syrian refugees in 3 of the day

Human rights activists: Turkish border guards killed five Syrian refugees in 3 of the day

“We talked with Syrians who are in Turkey, but they know well those who live in the border areas of Syria. Using certain techniques, we easily recorded seven cases of attacks on refugees in three days, as a result of which five people were killed and 14 were injured. Such figures make it possible to estimate how many such cases occur on the Turkish-Syrian border: after all, only one person received these data in a very short time, ”
said simpson.

The channel reminds that Ankara constantly refutes reports of attacks on refugees.

“Recently, we shared our data with the Turkish authorities and asked them for comments, but never received an answer. As far as we know, no statements were received from their side, ”he said.

HRW called on Ankara to open the border for Syrian asylum seekers. Turkey claims it is already "pursuing an open door policy towards migrants." However, sources denied this statement.

“Since October 2015, we have been documenting the situation in great detail and we have accurate data that since March of the same year, the border is closed and tens of thousands of people are being pushed back into the combat zone. We recently published two press releases regarding the situation of those who are forced to stay in the north of Syria in the so-called safe zone that Turkey is trying to establish with EU support, ”said Simpson.

The organization had previously reported 16 killed refugees, including three children.

    In March of that year, the border was closed and tens of thousands of people were forced back into the war zone.

    The Turks put detachments. They force the Basmachis to work out the money invested in them.

      They meet the basmachi with flowers and pies and arrange in sanatoriums or hospitals, and these refugees are simple people who are of no use to the Turkish authorities, and therefore they are treated like cattle, ordinary fascism performed by farther and liberal West.

    Turks cut off refugees and knock them down, and we should not talk about "the last three days" ...
    But the barmalei across their border roam like at home.
    And the stamping of passports, a la "Syrian" ones, was put on stream. To all "refugees" who wish.

        The main "observator" to whom the Western press refers.
        Not poorly settled. "Repeater" at work in London.

    A bullet is cheaper than being held in refugee camps. Money paid by Europe, now we need to save. Initially, it was a refugee business, and this is a continuation. Note, we know only known cases of murders, but as a rule this is only 5-10% of the total number.
