Defense chief “Around 60,000 Syrians in Türkiye have returned to their home since quakes”


 

Around 60,000 Syrians in Türkiye have returned to their home country across the border since the Feb. 6 earthquakes centered in Türkiye’s southern region, the Turkish national defense minister said on Monday.
Speaking in the quake-hit Hatay province, Hulusi Akar rebuffed claims of illegal crossings at the Turkish border, saying it “is absolutely untrue.”
Saying that Türkiye’s borders are being “intensely” protected, guarded, and monitored on a 24/7 basis with “state-of-the-art technology vehicles and equipment,” Akar affirmed that they are taking foolproof measures.
The Turkish defense chief further said that the claims of an influx of Syrian refugees to Türkiye via its southern border are “clearly untrue.”
“Around 60,000 Syrians living in Türkiye are returning to their own land due to the loss of their homes and relatives,” he added.
