Around 150,000 Syrians have immigrated to the north of Iraq, leaving the Kurdish region in Syria, and have been situated at camps there, escaping from the 2-year-old civil war in Syria and clashes between armed groups, especially after chemical weapons attack on civilians.
Kurds are Syria's largest ethnic minority, making up more than 10% of the country's 23 million people. They are centred in the poor north eastern regions of Hassakeh and Qamishli, wedged between the borders of Turkey and Iraq.
There are also several predominantly Kurdish neighbourhoods in the capital, Damascus, and Syria's largest city, Aleppo.Güncelleme Tarihi: 25 Ağustos 2013, 15:52
