At least 250 requests from Syrian refugees in Turkey to return to the liberated Syrian city of Jarablus have been received by Turkish authorities, a Turkish migration official told Anadolu Agency (AA) Wednesday. 

The Gaziantep office of the Directorate General of Migration Management, which operates under the Ministry of Interior, recorded the requests.

Oktay Bahceci, head of the provincial office, told AA the number of such applications was expected to increase after Jarablus was cleared from ISIS terrorist group as part of the Operation Euphrates Shield, which began Aug. 24 when the Free Syrian Army (FSA), backed by the Turkish Armed Forces, liberated the city of Jarbulus.

Bahceci said the directorate would help Syrians return to Jarablus.
