Turkey is already hosting 2 million Syrian refugees.

 

German Chancelor Angela Merkel also heads to Turkey as Syrian Refugees are waiting at border.

 

Aleppo was recently sieged by Syrian Army and government troops have cut down the main supply route to the rebels which may cause a disaster siege.
