The flow of Syrian refugees to Turkey, according to Amnesty International, led to a huge crisis. At the border, refugees are forced to return and border guards have killed at least seventeen refugees, the human rights organization writes in a report.

According to Amnesty, Turkey has major problems to provide hundreds of thousands of refugees with the most basic needs. That means that many of them have been left in the lurch and now have to live in poverty.

“The humanitarian assistance from the international community has been alarmingly little, but Turkey must also do more.” Andrew Gardner, Amnesty International
