 (Zaman Al Wasl)- The stray bullets of Turkish border guards (Jandarma) have killed a displaced woman in a refugee camp in Jisr al-Shughour region northwest Syria, activists told Zaman al-Wasl Sunday.

Two more women  were wounded by Jandarma in the Aleppo Camp near the town of Darkush.

Since the began of the Syrian revolution, the Turkish Jandarma has killed more than 430 Syrians, including 77 children, most of them were fleeing the regime bombing on northern Idlib province, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. 

Hundreds of Syrian displaced have been trying to flee the war-torn country towards Turkey using smuggling routes, such a dangerous trip costs $700 each.

Jandarma forces are indiscriminately shooting at and summarily returning Syrian asylum seekers attempting to cross into Turkey, according to Human Rights Watch.

Refugees who succeeded in crossing to Turkey, using smuggling routes, told Human Rights Watch that Turkish border guards shot at them and others while attempting to cross into Turkey. In some cases, Turkish border guards beat asylum seekers they detained and denied them medical assistance.

Ankara, which hosts 3.6 million Syrian refugees, controls parts of north Syria where it says 350,000 Syrians have already returned. 

Eight years of war in Syria have killed 560,000 people and driven half the pre-war population of 22 million from their homes, including more than 6 million as refugees to neighboring countries.
