STANBUL: A total 122 Syrians, including women and children, fled across the border into Turkey overnight seeking refuge from the unrest in northwest Syria, Turkish state-run Anatolian news agency reported on Wednesday. Syrians have fled the town of Jisr al-Shughour fearing bloodshed as troops with tanks approached, under orders to hit back after the government accused armed bands there of killing scores of security men.

Those who have crossed the border were being housed in tents set up by the Red Crescent in the Yayladagi district of southern Turkey’s Hatay province just north of the Syrian border. A Turkish foreign ministry official said around 420 people have crossed the border from Syria since the bloody protests started there in March. (PTI)
