Turkey to build displaced people camps in Syria

(MENAFN) Turkey is intending to build camps in nine different places in northern Syria to shelter the people who were displaced in the battle between Ankara's bombing and the Syrian Kurdish fighters, according to Turkey's Foreign Ministry.

Hami Aksoy, Ministry spokesman, declared that the camps would be able to shelter 170,000 people.

Turkey took control over a swath area surrounding the town of al-Rai, al-Bab and Jarablus, a border zone, of which Turkey and Turkey-backed rebels claimed from the Islamic State group.

Turkey started a campaign as well to force a Syrian Kurdish militia out the Afrin area which Ankara finds them "terrorist" and related to the revolutionists inside the country.
