Deportation of Syrians | Turkish Interior Minister denies the facts

The Turkish Minister of Interior “Ali Yarla Kaya” stated that the “volunteer return” of Syrians is still ongoing and is done in a safe way with no coercion.

Moreover, he confirmed that the return of Syrians is based on three words that suit the values of our culture “voluntary, safe, dignity”, under instructions of the president Erdogan, and he stated that half a million Syrians returned voluntarily to areas of the Syrian north, explaining that the country refuses to give residence permits to foreigners in areas that have over 20% foreigners, while they would not accept illegal immigrants especially in Istanbul.

SOHR activists are still following the cases of Syrians in Turkey, especially the forcibly deported, those killed by the Jandarma at the border and those who are violated while trying to cross into Turkey, showing the lies of the Turkish government that seeks demographic change in Syria.
