Syria War: refugees at the Turkish border – II

I’m Sohel Ahmed. I’m Kurdish and I come from Afrin, Syria.

Kurdish people in Syria suffer from two things: dictatorship and racism.

When the revolution first started we appreciated it because, as Kurdish people, we wanted to obtain political and historical rights, but the regime either killed the rebels or imprisoned them. Today we not only suffer because of the regime, but also because of the Islamic extremists.

Our home in Syria was destroyed by a rocket and I lost my son. After these tragic events, my wife and I fled the country and came here in Turkey as refugees.

Sometimes I think that the house we live in now is like a cave, or a grave, and I even have to pay for it. We survive thanks to my work as a translator. Back in Syria I was a teacher.

I think about my country every single day, but my thoughts are for a democratic Syria. Racism and nationalism have destroyed it. We want to go back and live there as human beings, free and in peace“.
