Turkey restricts border with Syria

2y ago


Turkey restricted border traffic with Syria, after Free Syrian Army rebel fighters took control of the Bab al-Hawa crossing from President Bashar al Assad forces. Truckers were warned that they were crossing the border at their own risk and that they may not be able to return back to Turkey. The flow of Syrian refugees into Turkey, however, continued to rise, unabated by who controls the border. Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports from Cilvegozu border gate on the Turkish side.
