Any independent observer could note that the migration flow through Turkey has grown more than in 20 times since 2014.

Also, an independent observer could ask “How do all that people travel through Turkey and the Mediterranean Sea to Europe“?… without any administrative support, accidentally.

Meanwhile, the US-led ‘anti-ISIS’ coalition which includes Turkey (what the news!) is continuing to fuel the Syrian war by supporting Islamist militant groups fighting the Syrian government. This is only strengthening the migration.
