13 Million Syrian Refugees Across the globe in Brutal Winter, Western Powers Supporting ISIL Militants

With the arrival of winter weather and snowfall, increased hardship lies ahead for approximately 1.6 million Syrian refugees who have fled to Turkey since a civil war erupted in Syria.
Freezing temperatures across Turkey, where a large number of refugees reside, are putting many of them at risk.Many children at the camp have no proper clothing to keep them warm.
“I don’t have socks or shoes. I’m getting cold,” a child said.
Thousands of Syrian refugees were afflicted by storm in Turkey. Many refugees in the country were trapped in their tents by the heavy rain and snow, struggling to stay warm in temperatures hovering around zero degrees.
A UN report said on Wednesday that as of mid-2014, more than three million Syrian refugees have been registered, accounting for nearly one-fourth of 13 million refugees across the globe.
Syria has been gripped by deadly violence since 2011. The Western powers and their regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey — are reportedly supporting the militants operating in the country.
