Desperate Syrians storm Turkish border

Hundreds of Syrians stormed a border crossing with Turkey on Friday in a protest that called for an end to a ferocious military offensive by Syrian and Russian government forces.


Video footage from the scene showed a huge convoy of motor vehicles massed at the border at Bab al-Hawa, the main gateway between Turkey and Syria’s northwest.


The demonstration underscored the desperation of hundreds of thousands of Syrians trapped inside the northwest of the country, amid a military campaign by the Syrian and Russian armies to recapture the final swathe of rebel-held territory.


Protesters called for Turkey to either open its border or demand an end to the government offensive. Some were pictured holding signs which read: “Save the rest of us.”
