A Syrian refugee boy enters his tent at Reyhanli refugee camp in Hatay province on the Turkish-Syrian border.

Over the past few weeks, the number of Syrians crossing has increased dramatically with an average of 200 to 300 now coming into Turkey every day. This week 1,000 crossed in just 24 hours, the highest number since the first wave of refugees last summer.
