Turkey's Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency (AFAD) has said it seeks international sponsors for Syrian refugees in Turkey.

AFAD President Fuat Oktay told AA correspondent that the number of the Syrian refugees in Turkey exceeded 100 thousand and sponsors were needed for the establishment of additional tent and container cities and the management expenses of those cities.

Oktay reminded that there were 13 tent and 1 container cities currently in southeastern Turkey and one more container city was planned to be established soon.

He said they called for an international aid a while ago, but the countries which had pledged to help did not extend any help so far.
