Title: Syrian Children Born in Turkey Risk Living Without Papers and Losing Citizen Rights
Short summary: With more than 3.5 million Syrian refugees in Turkey, the number of Syrian births has increased and exceeded 200,000.
This phenomenon entails a significant legal risk, especially if they are not registered in the records of personal status departments in Syria.
There are no Syrian statistics on the issue of births of Syrians in Turkey, they are limited only to Turkey because the deliveries are in Turkish hospitals.
