Refugee Crisis Part Deux

Post by Fat Cat » Thu Feb 27, 2020 11:29 pm

Turkey has decided to no longer stop Syrian refugees from reaching Europe by land and sea, a senior Turkish official told Reuters on Thursday, in anticipation of the imminent arrival of refugees from Syria’s Idlib where nearly a million have been displaced.

Turkish police, coast guard and border security officials have been ordered to stand down, the Turkish official added. Earlier on Thursday, a local Turkish governor said an attack on Turkish military in Idlib killed 27 soldiers.

EDIT: number is now at 57 dead. It went from 9, to 27, 39, to 57...basically Turks are getting their shit pushed in by Team Assad-Putin.

EU assistance to Turkey expires at the end of the year-- most likely this is a negotiation tactic leveraging the EU's most important foreign policy issue (immigration and migration).
