The pace of killing by the bullets of the Turkish Jandarma continue to increase, as members of the Turkish border guards continue to open fire on the Syrians citizens who are fleeing war, humanitarian catastrophes, and tragedies searching for a safe haven, but the safe destination was the place where they receive the last bullet and leave this life, adding casualty to another, where the Syrian territory witnessed all kind of ways of killings, while the Turkish authorities did not stand for their responsibilities to protect the human being, the bullet was the first Turkish attitude towards the Syrian who flee their lands, whose numbers increased with the arrival of tens of thousands of people who have been displaced from Damascus, Rif Dimashq, the southern Syrian provinces, and central Syria.
