Turkish Police Fire Teargas at Syrian Protesters in Refugee Camp


TEHRAN (FNA)- The Turkish police fired teargas and water cannon to disperse a large group of Syrian refugees protesting the death of a child in their camp.

Anatolia news agency reported that one protester was injured on Wednesday as anti-riot police cracked down on the demonstrators who were protesting after the child died in a fire in their camp.

The fire broke out in the camp in Akcakale in Southeastern Turkey which is housing some 25,000 Syrians who fled the conflict in their country.

One child was killed and three others injured sparking the protest by dozens of angry residents against their living conditions.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against the Syrian police, border guards, statesmen, army and the civilians being reported across the country.

Thousands of people have been killed since terrorist and armed groups turned protest rallies into armed clashes.

The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.
