“There have been many reports of incidents on the border. We collected information on this as early as 2014, when we received many reports of people being shot when they were trying to cross the border irregularly,” Amnesty International’s Andrew Gardner said.
“Now, the information we received via Syria doctors is that there are reports of two or three people being shot every day trying to cross the border irregularly,” he added.
According to the official, Ankara says that the borders are open, but Amnesty International has documented the opposite.
