Meet the Syrian Refugees Fleeing After Turkish Forces Bombard Their Homes


Syrian refugees are fleeing
into neighboring Iraq. We’re driving near the border,
following this convoy that’s carrying almost 300 Syrians
across Iraqi Kurdistan. They arrive at this camp,
set up years ago to house the displaced from earlier wars. Now, it will accommodate a
new wave of refugees escaping Turkey’s attack
on northeast Syria. Some have traveled
days to get here. As they wait to be processed, we take a moment to chat with
some of the families. Reporter: “He’s a little ill.” Almost 2,000 refugees have already left northeast
Syria in the last week. Camp organizers say that
they’re preparing for 50,000.

  1. Nice hasbara propoganda! Where was NYT when their kurdish allies were ethnically cleansing the Syrian christians and others in North syria???? HMMMMM 🤔

  2. Come on, stop showing your sympathy bcoz you didn't care bout them. Remember when Assad attacked on his people? Shame on you.

  3. India end State Terrorism, Social Murder, killing and illegal occupation of Kashmir now.
    Freedom, freedom, freedom of Kashmir from India.

  4. Very sad. Why is keep happening to innocent beautiful people in Middle East?

    May God Bless them 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

  5. I've always been a strong advocate for the Syrian refugees, especially the children who have no access to medical care, schools, food and housing. This situation is not going to get any better with Assad in control. Only worse. It's genocide. It's terrifying. And it all started in March 2011. But what I'd really like to know, is
    *How many Syrians ever took part in terrorist actions against the US?*
    NOT A SINGLE ONE.
    Yet: they're on tRump's racist list of banned countries. And my Christian mother in law is trapped in Damascus. But tRump, like Assad and other dictators, couldn't care less.
    Greed, corruption, nepotism, and narcissism, this is tRump's USA. Sold out the Kurdish people now. Turning our backs on everyone.
    God is watching.

  6. It's changed how I feel about my country. I honestly didn't think this could happen here. It's changed my view of the Republican Party, to see how they've fallen into a lockstep behind this man. It's changed how I feel about my neighbors. (This was the worst, by far, the day after the election, when I was literally in shock, and couldn't look at anyone, anywhere without a feeling of suspicion and rage: Did YOU vote for him?

    It's changed how I feel about the right-wing media, from annoyance and irritation to fear and loathing, having now seen the overwhelming power of propaganda, and a feeling of impotence to fight against it. It's changed how I feel about the Evangelical Christian community, from a quirky variant of Christianity to a malevolent force for evil. It's changed my perception of humanity in general, to see how easily people can be reduced to mindless, tribal allegiances, and to fear Trump's campaign promises

  7. Democrats 1963-Yesterday "end the endless wars! No more colonialism!"
    Democrats today: "why won't trump do endless wars and colonialism?"

  8. What about the 500000 children oh, half a million children, that United States Secretary of State Madeleine Albright admitted United States killed in the first Gulf War alone?

  9. This video is a textbook example for manipulative storytelling. The New York Times proves that it doesn't care the slightest way about the people in that region nor about the Syrian refugees.
    If it did, it would have reported that the YPG is made up of a bunch of terrorists who have silently massacred masses of Arabs, Kurds, Assyrians as well as Christians.
    The YPG has been heroized by the likes of the New York Times even though the group is essentially the same thing as Daesh, only with a different agenda.
    Directing the microphone to a bunch of YPG supporters and showing them as victims doesn't tell anything about the real story.
    Turkey has hosted more than 5 million Syrians who are the real victims of the 21st century's worst massacre and Turkey has the right to force terrorists from its border and provide a safe space for these war victims.
    If the actor was Israel instead of Turkey in this case, they would have been portrayed as non-negotiable heroes for getting rid of terrorists and providing safe haven for victims.

  10. Matthew 25:40
    Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

  11. quick, find a way to blame america even though the best cities in your culture are located in the third world built by slave labor.

  12. It is sad to say, but the rest of the world is in so much chaos that the United States needs to direct more concern for its own citizens. The United States cannot stand the burden of protecting billions of people in other countries. It is beyond our capabilities to police the entire world nor is it our responsibility.

  13. There are 3.6 million refugees in Turkey. They escaped the terrorists' persecution and their extensions. I think America should take 500,000 refugees with greencart. You don't want Muslims on the street, do you? You're a hypocrite. Turkish army
    He traveled to Lebanon, Kosovo, Korea, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Somalia. NATO's second largest army. Americans who love the Marxist and Leninist Pkk extensions.
    America became a communist, and we do not know. Turkey, until the Day of Judgment (until the rising sun from the west) will fight with them.

  14. I don't care about them. It sucks and sounds mean but I don't care. We need to take care of our own people instead of feeding people who hate us.. and they better not come to the USA. Go to another Arab country. Quit making us the holding cell of the world

  15. Oh well maybe they should fight for their country let me guess people are going to start saying it’s America’s fault all the people who are supposed to be against war now want us in one lol brainwashing is in full effect

  16. Ok guys all the people who believe in these news 💩 first of all where were these guy when the refugees left during USA and others countries invasion. Funny how the news are making turkey look bad because they want to protect their borders and clean out all terror caused by “some countries “ Turks accepted the most reffs and want to fix all the mess USA and others caused so they can go back to their home. 👏🏻 people who believe this.

  17. This is a war the US could not stop.
    There has to a agreement between the Turks and the Kurds.
    The Kurds would have died 50 yrs ago if America hadn't stepped in.

  18. Errr why are you guys putting this out today. Are you forgetting about the thousands of Christian refugees who have been homeless since Obama reign?!

  19. Convenient how the death of brown people in wars over deserts that have lasted 4k years becomes all of a sudden important enough as political fodder.

  20. I'm glad our troops are out of there. Didn't see this kind of angst when countless Christians were being slaughtered and rayped. Just more orange man bad.

  21. Muslims are not the free worlds friends.
    True Islam's goal is to take over the world.
    We should leave the Muslim world to their 1500 year old wars.
    The people have had hundreds and thousands of years to fight for their own freedom and haven't.

  22. This video is a textbook example for manipulative storytelling. The New York Times proves that it doesn't care the slightest way about the people in that region nor about the Syrian refugees.

  23. Keep showing the Turkish forces bad! That's all you know. I hope you do research after watching this video. It is obvious that the Turkish army is helpful. You are doing everything to make the Turkish army look bad! God is with us.
