New tent city set up on Syria-Turkey border

World Bulletin / News Desk

Thousands of civilians have fled to Syria's largest encampment for the internally displaced on the Turkish border over the latest daily Russian and regime airstrikes over Aleppo province.

Located in north Aleppo on the Syrian-Turkish border, the tent camps straddle the no-man's-land between the two nations in a 5 kilometres strip.

The recent regime offensive in Aleppo has sent tens of thousands of people fleeing toward the Turkish border, where they sleep in tents and open fields.

It also has disrupted aid deliveries, putting more civilians at risk of being completely cut off. Aid groups estimate that more than 100,000 people have left Aleppo in the past two weeks because of fears the city would become besieged.
