Turkish security forces arrest 20 illegal immigrants in Edirne

Turkish security forces arrested 20 irregular migrants in Edirne, who were found to have entered the country illegally.

Security forces continue their inspections in the city to prevent irregular migration.

After the necessary procedures, the irregular migrants were sent to the Provincial Directorate of Migration Management.

Türkiye has been a significant transit and destination country for irregular migrants and refugees due to its geographical location between Asia and Europe. The country shares borders with Syria, Iraq, Iran, and several other countries, making it a key point of entry for many people seeking asylum or better living conditions.

The term "irregular migrants" refers to individuals who enter or stay in a country without the necessary authorization or documents. These migrants can include refugees, asylum-seekers, and others who cross borders through unofficial channels or overstay their visas.

In recent years, Türkiye has faced significant challenges due to the influx of refugees, particularly from Syria. The country hosts one of the largest refugee populations globally, with millions of Syrians seeking safety from the ongoing conflict in their country.
