Turkish army takes Syrian refugees in “Bazaar Koleh” area on Greece border to medical centers

Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that the Turkish army forcibly deported all refugees in “Bazaar Koleh” area on the Greece-Turkey border. Turkish soldiers tore all tents set by asylum seekers who hoped to infiltrate to Greece then to Europe.

SOHR sources say that Turkish forces transported the refugees by buses to medical centers in order to be subjected to coronavirus tests. It is planned that these refugees will be deported later to Istanbul. Moreover, some refugees were beaten by Turkish army.

Yesterday, SOHR sources reported that Turkish Army and The Turkish Red Crescent were asking the refugees, in the camps of “Bazaar Koleh” on the Greece-Turkey border, to choose between two options either quarantine in the student dorms or deportation to Istanbul, under the pretext of the spread of Coronavirus inside the camp. Turkish army personnel tore up a number of tents in order to force the refugees to empty the area.

The Syrian Observatory has obtained a video footage showing hundreds of women and children waiting for help since 6 a.m. in their designated lines, while more are in the men’s lines.

Syrian Observatory sources confirmed that the displaced persons are being treated inhumanely, while chaos prevails in that area chaos with a total absence of humanitarian organization, with the aim of returning refugees to their areas due to continued neglect.

On March 24, Turkish coast guard teams rescued 114 asylum seekers in western Aegean Sea, 44 of whom were people of Syrian nationality.

According to the Statement of the Turkish Coast Guard, the asylum-seekers were rescued after receiving a distress call from them, in three different areas after being returned by the Greek Coast Guard to Turkish territorial sea.
