The number of Syrian refugees who arrived at the Turkish border in the Azaz District in the hope of escaping hostilities in northern Syria has reached 100, 000, reports Doctors Without Borders NGO.
The NGO’s members criticized the fact that Turkey is denying entry to its territory to Syrians from ISIS-controlled areas.
Over the last week, some 35, 000 refugees fleeing ISIS have gathered in displaced persons camps at the Turkish-Syrian border.
A US and Russia-mediated ceasefire between forces of moderate Syrian opposition and the Asad regime was declared in late February.
However, the ceasefire does not extend to ISIS and al-Nusra Front (an Al Kaida branch in Syria) terrorist organizations. Hostilities that broke out last week between forces of moderate Syrian opposition and the Asad regime have put in jeopardy the ceasefire that lasted some 6 weeks.
