Where Will The Syrian Refugees Go?

Where Will The Syrian Refugees Go?

During last month, 100,000 Syrians left the country due to the ongoing conflict between the Assad regime and the Free Syrian Army. Refugee camps have been set up in Turkey and in Jordan, but those two countries do not have adequate resources to give shelter to those fleeing from Syria.

The refugee camps established in these countries are makeshift tents across the Syrian border in desert locations. The situation has become so dire that Turkey turned away 20,000 Syrian refugees in August.

With the war in Syria being stuck in a stalemate, it appears that more Syrian people will attempt to flee. However, they probably will not have a place to go. The options of going to a neighboring country are not good at all. Jordan and Turkey are not able to aid all of these people. They cannot flee to Lebanon because the conflict has spilled over from Syria. Notice that no refugee camps have been established in Israel to the south.

The question still remains, "Where will the Syrian refugees go?"

There is nowhere to hide for Syrians attempting to flee the conflict. Turkey and Jordan are closing their refugee camps. The conflict has spilled over to Lebanon. Plus, Israel has decided to not accept any who flee from Syria.
