After nearly ten years since the Syrian revolution, and the absence of any real prospect for a political solution in Syria, the Syrian refugees ceased waiting for the end of the catastrophic war in order to return to their country. However, they have decided to immigrate trying to adapt and adapt to the new conditions in the Turkish society, dreaming of the starting a new life, or a reborn, so to speak. The statistics issued by the Turkish Ministry of Interioraffairs show that the number of Syrian refugees has reached three million and 635,000 in Turkey, of whom 429,000 live in Şanlıurfa alone.
