DHA photoAround 1,000 Syrian refugees who have fled from violence in northern Syria are waiting to cross into Turkey at the Öncüpinar border gate, a Turkish official told the Hürriyet Daily News today.
The refugees have been forced to wait along the border between Turkey and Syria because there is not enough space at the shelter camps.
More than 5,000 Syrian refugees who fled to Turkey last week from the violence in Aleppo have been placed in a newly constructed shelter camp in the southern province of Şanlıurfa.
The construction of five new camps has been continuing in four different Turkish provinces for two weeks now. The construction of the Şanlıurfa camp has not yet been completed but should be finished within a few days, according to a Turkish official.
