Hundreds of Refugees Reportedly Move Towards European Borders Amid Escalation in Idlib

Ankara has linked a new refugee crisis with renewed hostilities in Syria’s Idlib Province, where the Syrian Army has been repelling militant attacks, some of which began under the cover of Turkish artillery fire, according to the Russian Defence Ministry.

Hundreds of refugees coming from Syria, Pakistan, Iran, and Iraq are currently moving towards Turkey’s borders with Europe following reports that Ankara will no longer prevent migrants from crossing them, Turkey’s Anadolu Agency reported. According to the media outlet, these refugees have been moving in large groups on foot and using vehicles via the cities of Istanbul, Edirne, Izmir, and Aydin.

A video shot by a Sputnik correspondent shows how some of these refugees are getting on buses travelling between Kazlicesme and Edirne, a city close to Turkey's borders with Bulgaria and Greece. The latter has recently started reinforcing its borders to prevent refugees from breaching it after having already dealt with a massive migrant influx during the 2015 crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF in fact these reports are true (and Sputnik is not known for pulling punches), the impact on an already immigrant over-saturated Europe, may well be devastating.
