Relations between Ankara and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad have
deteriorated recently. Turkey raises a furious voice against al-Assad,
who refuses to implement reforms, Sabahnewspaper reports citing an
unknown source.

According to the newspaper, Turkey is concerned over security of 7% of
the population of Syria, particularly Armenians, Kurds and Circassians
and if necessary will open the door to them. Over 500,000-1,000,000
refugees will emigrate from Syria to Turkey, if possible.

Independent reporter Robert Fisk wrote in his article that “the
Turks are prepared to advance well beyond the Syrian border town
of Al Qamishli – perhaps half way to Deir el-Zour (the old desert
killing fields of the 1915 Armenian Holocaust, though speak it not) –
to provide a “safe haven” for those fleeing the slaughter in Syria’s
cities.”
