Social unrest spread to Istanbul

The tensions between the Turkish population and the Syrian refugee population now spread from Southeast Turkey, where most of the refugees stay, to
Istanbul! It is about time that the Turkish government supported by the international community comes up with mid- and longterm solutions! With the ongoing civil war in Syria, IS fights, and the crisis in Iraq it does not look likely that the refugee influxes will come to an end soon. Even though many Turkish host communities are very welcoming and helpful towards their neighbours in need, tension and social unrest have grown over the last weeks. One of the solutions of the government bringing Syrian families to tent cities to seperate them
from the Turkish people cannot be the solution, but also gives proof the challenging situation here.
