How Turkey’s Promise to Stop the Flow of Refugees Is Creating a New Crisis

Turkey is struggling to cope with the 2.7 million Syrians it hosts and honor its agreement to stop refugees from crossing into Europe. And renewed fighting in Syria last week pushed tens of thousands of Syrians closer to the border with Turkey, in a sign that the problem could still get worse.

More than a million Syrians in Turkey are living along the southeastern border
with Syria. But more than one million people are spread throughout the
country, in cities and in rural areas. Istanbul alone has nearly 400,000
registered Syrians.
