Turkey opened the border for thousands of refugees fleeing IS

After IS attacked and captured 20 villages in Syria at the Turkish border thousands of Kurds massed at the border. Yesterday Turkish authorities opened the border allowing them to cross to Turkey. Rapid emergency camaps are now built mainly in the province Şanlıurfa.

The following link leads to „Nar Photos“ wittnessing and documenting the situation yesterday:

Around 60,000 people crossed the border in the last 24h to seek refuge in Turkey! Help is needed everywhere – accomodation, food, medical and psychological help. This new influx of refugees into Southeast of Turkey imposes a further challenge for the authorities and host communities who are already struggeling with the existing high numbers of refugees.
