This May, a French woman and her two children entered Syria from Turkish territory near Khirbet al-Joz.Demand to cross the border comes in many forms, including refugees escaping Syria, fighters (Syrian and foreign) in need of medical aid and those collecting money transfers in Turkey.However, foreign fighters have the funds to cross the border without taking risky routes.They spend some time in Turkish hospitals then head back to Syria, once again relying on ties with the officers on the borders.A woman in her 20s who recently reached Holland but did not wish to be named as she feared for her family in Turkey, said she had worked at the Amal Hospital and that the Turkish intelligence services would help foreign fighters enter Turkey. In other words, Turkey wants to send a message, by closing its borders, that it is no longer able to absorb Syrians, leaving people at the mercy of the free market: Whoever can afford it can pay, and whoever cannot pay must try other means.
