A Turkish court arrested three soldiers allegedly filmed beating up and verbally abusing four young Syrians who attempted to cross the border illegally, state media reported Monday.The video, widely shared on social media but which could not be independently verified, appears to shows four Turkish soldiers kicking and beating the Syrian nationals. It said the Syrians who attempted to cross illegally were deported back after passing medical checks.The video was apparently filmed by one soldier, whose shadow appears in the footage. Turkey is home to 2.9 million Syrian refugees, according to government figures, but the vast majority are scattered throughout the country rather than in camps.
