Number of Syrian people who escaped from the violence in their country and took shelter in Turkey dropped to 10,227 as of Sunday, Anadolu Agency reported.

According to a statement released by the Turkish Prime Ministry Disaster & Emergency Management Directorate (AFAD), a total of 15,228 Syrian nationals have fled to Turkey and 5,001 of them have returned to their country until today.

As of today, a total of 10,227 Syrians are staying at tent-camps in Turkey, the statement said.

AFAD said Syrians were staying in five temporary tent-sites set up by Turkish Red Crescent in Altinozu, Yayladagi and Reyhanli towns of Turkey's southern province of Hatay.

Hundreds of people have been killed during pro-democracy protests in Syria since January 2011.
