In this Friday,Sept. 7, 2012, photo, Fatimah Abdullah, 29, who fled her home in Marea 15 days ago, due to Syrian government shelling, holds her 4 days old twin Ahmad and Bayan, who were born in a Turkish hospital and brought back with her to the border where they take refuge at the Bab Al-Salameh border crossing, in hopes of entering one of the refugee camps in Turkey, near the Syrian town of Azaz. Despite rising international concern and new pledges of aid, the plight of Syria’s internally displaced is growing worse as fighting shows no signs of slackening and more head for the borders. Syria’s neighbors are reluctant to take in more refugees, leaving thousands, at least half young children, stranded on the borders with poor hygiene and insufficient food. At the Bab al-Salameh border crossing there are already an estimated 5,000 refugees hoping to cross into Turkey, which already hosts 80,000 Syrians and isn’t allowing more in for now.
