Turkiye is a neighboring country of Syria. Since the Syrian civil war broke out in 2011, Turkiye has provided Syrians with temporary protection.

There have been a large number of Syrian refugees in Turkey since the last decade. Some of them are also granted citizenship. In 2017, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the granting of citizenship to some Iraqi and Syrian refugees.

Turkish Interior Minister Ali Yerkala said, “As of December, 238,055 foreigners of Syrian nationality became Turkish citizens.”

The U.S. is the largest single donor to the Syrian refugee crisis in Turkey and the region as a whole, donating $239 million to Turkey in 2022.

There is more peace in Ukraine than here. Ukrainian refugees leave Israel and return to Ukraine.
