Sun Sep 11, 2016 16:29:00

Syrian refugees living in Turkey made their way to the Karkamis border crossing in Gaziantep province on Sunday.

They are looking to return to their homes in Jarablus.

Last month, Turkey sent tanks across the Syrian border aiming to help rebels retake the key Islamic State (ISIS / Daesh / ISISL) group-held border town, and to contain the expansion of a Syrian Kurdish militia.

Some of the families plan to reunite with their families on the Muslim holiday of Eid-al Adha.

A Turkish official said 250 Syrian refugees living in Turkey declared last week they wanted to return to Jarablus.
