About 150 Syrians escaping the continuing violence in the country, crossed into Turkish territory on Wednesday, TRT Haber TV channel reported on Friday.

Earlier about 10 Syrians arrive in Turkey and they were accommodated in border areas.
Anti-government protests which began in mid-March have persisted in Syria for almost a year. Daily reports are being received about the deaths of people, both civilians and the security forces.

According to UN statistics, the total number of victims in the country exceeds 5,400 people. The Syrian authorities accuse armed militants of the clashes saying they receive assistance from neighbouring countries.
