Shakir Yassin, Head of Refugees Commission of the regional administration in north of Iraq, has said that there was a need for a buffer zone that should be set up in Syria for Syrian citizens who left their country due to ongoing violence in the country.
Speaking to Anadolu Agency correspondent on Wednesday, Yassin stated that the number of Syrian people who are currently staying in the north of Iraq exceeded 27,000.
Noting that the number was increasing each passing day, Yassin said that more than three thousands Syrians entered Irbil, Sulaymaniyah and Dahok cities of Iraq in the north.
"There is an atrocious massacre in their country, and we do understand the situation. We will continue to receive them with open arms. We do never think of closing the borders to them but the number is escalating everyday. The winter is ahead of us, and there are sick people as well as many old and children in the camps. They are in need of sheltering under better conditions," said Yassin.
Expressing that United Nations and European Union should not be onlooker to the problems, "A buffer zone should be set up for the Syrian people who are fleeing their country because of the violence. Those people should be protected via establishing a safe zone in Syria," Yassin said.
