Turkey is forcibly returning refugees to war-ravaged Syria, says Amnesty

April 1, 2016 - Uncategorized



Turkey is rounding up and forcibly deporting refugees back to war-ravaged Syria on a near-daily basis, claims Amnesty International.

The human rights organization said in a report released Friday that Turkish authorities in the country’s southern border provinces have been forcibly deporting groups of around 100 Syrian men, women and children to Syria since mid-January.

The allegations come after Thursday’s distressing The Times report accusing Turkish border officers of shooting and killing 16 Syrian refugees trying to cross the border to Turkey.
