Syrian refugees return to Kobani from Turkey

11 March 2015 Wednesday

The refugees crossed the border from Mursitpinar border gate, located in the southern Turkish district of Suruc, after officials checked their identity papers. A registration system for the refugees was made by Turkey’s emergency body, AFAD.

The refugees are allowed to cross back into northern Syria at least three days every week.

Some 200,000 Kobani residents rapidly fled to Turkey’s neighboring town of Suruc in Sanliurfa province in one week in early October.
