The Turkish Coast Guard Command rescued 130 migrants in three boats in the Aegean Sea, security sources announced Thursday.
The boats carrying 89 Syrian and 41 Afghan nationals were pushed back toward Turkey by the Greek coast guard off the coast of Aydın province in southwestern Turkey.

Turkey currently hosts over 3.7 million Syrian refugees, making it the world's top refugee-hosting country.
