Syrian refugees in Turkey are being detained and reportedly deported back to Syria in the past month. According to observers, anti-refugee sentiment in the country is rising, in the country that once welcomed Syrians fleeing from civil war.
Turkey’s capture of the alleged mastermind of the 2013 Reyhanli bombing — the biggest Syria-related injury Turkey has suffered — had intriguing timing, coinciding with Ankara’s efforts to prevent a regime offensive on Idlib.
On Tuesday, the United Nations sent 29 trucks of humanitarian aid to Syria's last rebel-held province of Idlib. The convoy carrying over 580 tons of aid passed through the Reyhanli district in Turkey, and will be distributed to people in need in Idlib.
