At least 120 refugees fleeing the unrest in Syria have arrived in Turkey and are under the supervision of Turkish police, AFP reported Wednesday.

The 122 refugees, mostly from the northwestern Syrian town of Jisr Al Shughur, crossed illegally into Turkey later Tuesday night, making their way to the village of Karbeyaz Koyu in the Hatay province of Turkey, AFP quoted local villagers as saying

The Syrians were taken to a refugee camp set up by the Red Crescent in Yayladag, 45 kilometers west of Karbeyaz Koyu, after identification procedures were conducted by Turkish officials.

No refugees were injured, AFP reported.
