Syrian refugees face rising resentment in post-election Turkey
Amid current economic difficulties in Turkey, the Syrian refugees in the country are facing rising resentment, if not hostility, from the local population, especially following the recent local elections. There are more than 3.63 million Syrians living in Turkey, most of them are still registered as refugees, while only a small proportion of them, or 55,000, have been granted Turkish citizenship. The Syrians are not very welcome by local Turkish communities in some cities, not only for cultural differences, but also due to the economic challenges.
