The UK Response to the Migrant Crisis (Extra Scene from ‘The UK’s Fight Against The Islamic State’)

The civil war in Syria has helped to create an unprecedented refugee crisis, with at least four million people having fled the country. Around 100,000 migrants and refugees have made it across the Mediterranean Sea to Europe in flimsy boats already in 2015, having paid thousands of dollars to gangs of people smugglers to facilitate the crossing.

Others have drowned when those boats have become overloaded and sunk. So far this year, over 1,700 people have died attempting the journey.

Earlier this month, the British warship HMS Bulwark was deployed to the Mediterranean to assist in rescuing migrants and refugees trying to cross into Europe by boat.

In this extra scene from “The UK’s Fight Against the Islamic State”, British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond sheds light on the UK’s response to the migrant crisis and the methods being mooted by the EU to halt it.

Night Operation with a People Smuggler: Turkey’s Border War (Dispatch 5)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

When Islamic State militants attacked the Syrian border town of Kobane, 180,000 civilians fled in fear to neighboring Turkey. Weeks later, the Turkish state tightened the control of its borders, limiting entry and exit. Thousands are now left in risky positions between the conflict in Kobane and the closed border.

VICE News met with a smuggler who risks his life while he was on a night operation to get families away from Kobane and into Turkey, while trying to avoid Turkish authorities.

Trapped Inside the War Zone: Turkey’s Border War (Dispatch 4)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

In mid-September, Islamic State militants launched an offensive to seize Kobane, a predominantly Kurdish town in Syria just across the border from Turkey. In the following weeks, Turkey closed its border, leaving thousands of civilians stuck inside the war zone and preventing Kurds in Turkey from coming to the aid of their comrades. Violent protests subsequently broke out all over Turkey as Kurds accused authorities there of supporting the Islamic State.

More than 30 people have now been killed in clashes between Kurdish supporters, Turkish authorities, and Islamists. In the town of Diyarbakir, banks and public buildings have been set ablaze and destroyed.

VICE News went to Diyarbakir to meet with the youth wing of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and discuss their involvement in the clashes. We then spoke to both the family of a young man who claim he was killed by Islamists, and to an Islamist leader.

Uncertain Future for Kobane Prisoners: Turkey’s Border War (Dispatch 3)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

In mid-September, Islamic State militants launched an offensive to seize Kobane, a predominantly Kurdish town in Syria just across the border from Turkey. In the following weeks, Turkey closed its border, leaving thousands of civilians stuck inside the active war zone, trying to get past the tightly controlled crossings.

On October 5, 274 Kurds from Kobane were arrested at the Turkish border and held in a large room at a police station in the Turkish village of Suruc. Authorities have not given the people arrested — including many women and children — a reason for their detention, except to say they are suspected of being members of the YPG, the Kurdish fighters defending Kobane from the Islamic State.

VICE News visited Suruc to find out the status of the prisoners and when they would be released, only to learn they are being held indefinitely. We spoke via video chat with a prisoner who described the conditions in the facility, and visited his family to discuss their unknown destiny.

Life Inside Kurdish Refugee Camps: Turkey’s Border War (Dispatch 2)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

When Islamic State jihadists launched a major offensive on the majority Kurdish town of Kobane in September, more than 180,000 people fled across the border into Turkey. Local authorities struggled to cope with the influx at first, and thousands of refugees were forced to sleep on the streets of the Turkish border town of Suruc. Now camps are being set up to provide shelter and other assistance.

With the borders closed and thousands unable to leave Kobane, VICE News visited one of six refugee camps in the town to find out how refugee families — some sharing tents with up to 14 other people — are coping with leaving their homes and livelihoods behind.

Kurds Left Helpless as Kobane Falls to Islamic State: Turkey’s Border War (Dispatch 1)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

Turkey has closed its border with Syria as Islamic State militants battle Kurdish forces in the Syrian border town of Kobane. Turkish checkpoints and tanks ensure that no one enters or exits the town, while nearby some of the 180,000 refugees who previously fled into Turkey watch helplessly as the fighting unfolds in front of them.

VICE News travelled to the Turkish side of the border as US airstrikes hit Islamic State positions in Kobane. As we watched alongside Kurds from both Syria and Turkey, they talked about Turkey’s lack of support for the Kurds fighting in Kobane and provided updates on the battle.
