Turkish forces are present in northern Syria to prevent the formation of a terrorist corridor along its border and ensure the safety of Syrian locals who want to live peacefully or resettle after taking shelter in Türkiye during the decade-long civil war.

Türkiye hosts some 3.5 million Syrians, more than any other country in the world, while it works to make border areas of Syria safe for voluntary returns.
