Syrian refugees in Turkey – clarification!!

After hundreds of articles, reports, questions there is one thing which I really would like to clarify:

Turkey currently hosts more than 2 million Syrian refugees. In the news outside of Turkey it is always said that they are stay in refugee camps in South East Turkey. This is not true. Only around 15% of them do. The rest are so called ‚urban refugees‘ who live in unfinished buildings, garages, shops, rented homes, public shelter, tents and on the streets all over the country from Kilis to Istanbul.

Assuming refugees all live in camps reveals a false picture in every way!
