Syria unrest hits border trade with Turkey

Deteriorating relations between Turkey and Syria have severely reduced cross-border trade.

    In 2010, cross-border trade between the Syria and Turkey was estimated at about $2.5bn.

    However, the violence in Syria means that this has now dropped considerably.

    One of the worst hit cities in Turkey is Hatay, a traditional hub for the country’s trade with the Middle East.

    Al Jazeera's Hashem Ahelbarra reports from Hatay.
