Syria refugees endure winter in Turkish camps

Freezing weather adds to plight of displaced Syrians who already lack basic medical supplies and food.

    Hundreds of thousands of Syrian civilians have fled from civil war to neighbouring countries, where they often face poor living conditions in refugee camps.

    Turkey plays host to about 150,000 Syrian refugees. In the southern Turkish city of Antakya, winter is intensifying challenges for displaced Syrians, who say they are quickly running out of food and medicine.

    There are also about two million people internally displaced in Syria due to the government's heavy attacks on civilian areas across country.
