Syrian Refugee Shares Video of Bus Trip to Greek Border as Turkey Steps Back From EU Deal

Groups of migrants and refugees began heading toward Turkey’s borders with Greece and Bulgaria on February 28 after officials said Turkey would step back from a 2016 deal it made with the EU to stop them from doing so.

Abdulhadi Kel, a Syrian refugee, shared his journey with Storyful from Istanbul to Turkey’s border with Greece.

Kel says in the first part of the video that they’re heading to Edirne.

The second part of the video shows the group en route from Istanbul to Edirne.

In the final two parts of the video, Kel says they’re headed toward the river between Turkey and Greece to cross the border. Credit: Abdulhadi Kel via Storyful
