Weekly Report 1 : Syria

Syrian refugees are fleeing to the border of Turkey in the latest development in the Syrian War. As many as 35,000 syrian refugees joined together outside the turkey border on Saturday trying to flee the Syrian government onslaught. The governor of the Turkish border province of Kilis said that he would help the refugees of Syria but would only open its borders if there were an “extraordinary crisis.”

At an European Union meeting, councilmen urged tukey to open up its borders due for internation protection for the Syrians and that they would do everything to aid Turkey in helping the Syrians. The European Union nations have already given Turkey 3.3 billion dollars for aid for the Syrians. The Syrian armed forces have been advancing across the north behind the support of Russian airstrikes. Syrian’s Foreign Minister has said this week that “they are on pace to end this conflict” behind the likes of Syrian ground troops and Russian airstrikes.
