Kurdish migrants stranded in Syria

54 Kurdish migrants stranded in Syria would be returned to the region this evening through Turkey.

Ankara had reportedly deported the Kurdish migrants to Syrian territory because they claimed they were Syrians, thinking that the Turkish authorities would turn a blind eye as they attempted to migrate to Europe.

Turkey sent the migrants to the city of Azaz in northern Aleppo, an area under the control of the Turkish government and its Syrian opposition allies.

The Kurds reportedly spent several days in harsh conditions in the area. They then appealed to the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) to help them return to the region.
