250,000 immigrants are heading to Turkey

Turkish President Recep Erdogan claims that around 250,000 Syrians are moving to the Turkish border from the war-torn Syrian province of Idlib.

In the Idlib province, Syrian government forces and Russian supporting forces are currently fighting rebels, of which there are now around 3 million. Erdogan claims that Europe is threatening to repeat the 2015 migration situation and that his country will not be able to deal with it. It is already difficult to stop a new wave of refugees from entering Turkish territory. The recipe to stop the wave of refugees is to stop fighting, but it is currently unrealistic.
