Second batch in 24 hours | Turkish authorities repatriate nearly 100 Syrian refugees

Reliable SOHR sources have confirmed that Turkish authorities have repatriated nearly 100 Syrian refugees to Syria via Bab Al-Salama border crossing in Azaz countryside in northern Aleppo.

 

It is worth noting that this is the second batch in 24 hours, as Turkey continues to repatriate Syrian refugees on its territory by force, specially those who carry temporary protection cards ”Kimlik.”

 

Accordingly, the number of Syrian refugees repatriated from Turkish territory since yesterday has reached 135.

 

This comes a part of Ankara’s intention to repatriate all Syrian refugees from Turkey by 2023 in order to settle them in the so called “safe zone” in areas under the control of Turkish forces and their proxies in northern Syria.

 

Yesterday, SOHR sources reported that Turkish authorities repatriated 35 Syrian refugees, who have the temporary protection cards “Kimlik” issued by the Turkish Immigration Department, from Turkish territory towards Syria, through “Bab Al-Salama” crossing on the Syria-Turkey border.
