 Turkey has launched a crackdown on Syrian refugees in the country, reportedly forcing them to sign “voluntary return” forms and deporting them the back to Syria.

The Human Rights Watch (HRW) published a report detailing numerous accounts of registered and non-registered refugees being verbally and physically abused before being forcefully transported to Syria’s terrorist-occupied northern Idlib province.

“Turkey claims it helps Syrians voluntarily return to their country, but threatening to lock them up until they agree to return, forcing them to sign forms, and dumping them in a war zone is neither voluntary nor legal,” said HRW’s associate emergencies director Gerry Simpson.

The Turkish government has played a major in role in supporting various terrorist groups seeking to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, turning the country into a vital gateway for terrorist forces and supplies seeking to enter Syria.

The bloody conflict and havoc resulting from the foreign-backed terror campaign against the country has so far led to more than 400,000 deaths according to United Nations estimates.

The resulting humanitarian crisis has also consequently led to the creation of one of the world’s most serious refugee crises, with Turkey being overwhelmed with millions of Syrian refugees fleeing the war, many of which seek to further immigrate to Europe.

An estimated 3.6 million Syrian refugees currently reside in Turkey, the highest number of Syrian refugees in any country.

About half a million of them reside in the country’s largest city of Istanbul amid rising Turkish public anger over the refugees’ presence.

Last month, the UN warned that a military escalation in Idlib could send up to "two million" additional refugees into Turkey.

Turkey has been registering refugees under a “temporary protection” status since 2014.
