Turkey: Escalating tension along the border

Ever since Turkish armed forces retaliated against the rain of Syrian shells and mortars on Turkish soil, tensions along the border have continued to escalate.

Hundreds of thousands of Turkish residents and Syrian refugees in the border region are now seeking refuge in Turkey’s interior. Many fear the Syrian civil war may become a regional conflict. Even foreign tourists are cancelling travel in the area.
