Syrian migrants are not welcome in Turkey anymore. Media reports confirm that they are being systematically deported, forcing to sign papers in the Turkish language, which most do not comprehend. They are now finding themselves returning to a place, which has been long forgotten by most migrant Syrians as home.
Turkey has till date, been home to more than 3.6 million Syrians refugees whose fate now remains uncertain as a recent media report confirms that since the last few days, Syrians are being deported to the Bab Al-Hawa crossing.
Many have been sent back on the pretext that they don’t have the required papers to stay in Turkey. Most are in need of a temporary protection permit.
Since 2011, when the Syrian Civil War started, more than 370,000 have lost their lives and millions more displaced. At the moment, more than 4,400 Syrians have been sent back via Bab Al-Hawa.
At a press conference in Istanbul recently, Syria’s exiled opposition said it had received assurances from Turkish authorities that Syrian “families would not be deported to Syria.” But media reports confirm that Anas Abdah, the head of the Syrian National Coalition, called on all Syrians in Turkey to settle their status with the authorities.
The northern city of Syria remains under the control of a military council allied to Syria’s Kurds. They are obviously seen by Turkey and its Syrian rebel proxies as “terrorists. In such circumstances, there is little hope to find any employment or way to restart life yet again, for those Syrians who have been deported back for one reason or the other.
