70,000 refugees heading to Turkey due to increased bombing in Syria

Tens of thousands of Syrians are moving towards the Turkish border from the Syrian city of Aleppo due to increased aerial bombardment, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Thursday at a fundraising conference in London.

‘Ten thousand new refugees are waiting in front of the door of Kilis because of air bombardments and attacks against Aleppo,’ he said, citing new information he had received on his way to London.

Kilis is a border province in southern Turkey abutting an area of Syria largely opposition-held.
