Turkish officials have confirmed that a total of 2,800 Syrian refugees fleeing battle between Kurdish fighters and ISIS group in northern Syria, have crossed into Turkey through the southern Akçakale border gate. Nearly 3,000 Syrian refugees, fleeing the battle between Kurdish fighters and ISIS group in northern Syria , have started to cross into Turkey on Sunday. In the early afternoon, a group of Syrian refugees have been directed to an area near to Turkey's Akçakale crossing gate by Turkish authorities in order to let them onto the Turkish side. However ISIS fighters, who have the control of Tal Abyad, impeded the refugees from crossing onto the other side of the border and asked people to go back to the city centre of Tal Abyad. Only four families have been able to cross the border into Turkey's Şanlıurfa province. After the refugees were impeded by the ISIS fighters, they have rushed through broken down border fences to enter Turkish territory illegally as many of the refugees' relatives were already waiting for them on the Turkish side. In the early evening, the Turkish authorities have been able to open the Akçakale border gate and the refugees began to enter as of 18.20 p.m., local time. Turkey had taken in over nearly 15,000 Syrian refugees escaping the fighting for Tal Abyad in the last two weeks.
