Media in Turkey have reported that around midnight, nearly 300 migrants, including women and children started to make their way to the border between Bulgaria and Greece in the province of Edirne. Among them were Syrians, Iranians, Iraqis, Pakistanis and Moroccans. After 33 Turkish soldiers were killed in an air strike by Syrian government forces in the northwestern province of Idlib yesterday, a spokesman for Ankara authorities said that while awaiting more Idlib refugees, police, the coastguard and Turkish border forces have been ordered not to impede refugees traveling by land and sea.
