A new lease of life was pumped into an uneventful Turkish town of Kilis as Syrian refugees arrived there, bringing in new opportunities and reigniting its slow economy, the New York Times reported.
The first repatriations to Ras al Ayn in Syria were reported on Friday when dozens of Syrian refugees returned to the area targeted by Operation Peace Spring, launched by Turkey in October.
The warning from Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu comes a day after a Turkish military convoy was targeted by an air strike in northwest Syria, killing three civilians.
The Turkish military convoy was heading toward an observation post established as part of an agreement between Russia, Iran and Turkey to turn Syria's Idlib into a de-escalation zone.
Over 400,000 Syrian refugees live in Gaziantep and many of them have decided to start their own businesses. Even though 80% of those were unofficial in 2016, now over 1,000 Syrians have registered enterprises.
