Saudi Group to set up Refugee Camp

World News – A Saudi charity group will build a container city that can house 10,000 Syrian refugees in Turkey’s Kilis province near the border, a Turkish official said Saturday.


The project of the Saudi National Campaign to Support Brothers in Syria is expected to be ready within a month, the official told AFP.


When opened, it will be the second camp in Kilis, already home to the largest container city for 12,000 refugees.


The Saudi organisation will also set up a prefabricated hospital, said the official, declining to give funding figures.


The Sunni-ruled kingdom has taken a strong stance against the escalating bloodshed in Syria and thrown support behind the Syrian opposition.


Turkey shelters more than 80,000 registered refugees in several camps in the southeast region bordering Syria as well as army defectors. (AFP)
