Amnesty International: Turkey has forced thousands of refugees to return to Syria

Amnesty International said in a new report Turkey has illegally forced thousands of refugees to return to Syria.

 

According to the human rights organization, an estimated one hundred Syrians have been sent back to face conflict and war every day since the middle of January, breaking international law.

 

Turkey has denied sending any Syrians back against their will.

 

Under international law and the principles that it upholds, it is a violation to deport people back to war zones.

 

Amnesty recorded incidents of men, women, and children including unaccompanied minors and those who were pregnant forced back into conflict.
