Dozens of Syrians were seen waiting by the Turkish border on June 15, escaping the brutal crackdown of President Bashar Al-Assad's security forces. Around 8500 Syrian refugees have been provided shelter camps on Turkey's border. Refugee camps have been made available in Turkey's Hatay province, across from the Syrian city of Jisr al-Shughour. Turkey is preparing to receive more refugees in the east along the 800 km Syrian-Turkish border. Syrian rights groups have said an estimated 1300 civilians have been killed, since the uprising began in March this year. By: Ikram AL Yacoub Al Arabiya with Agencies
