AVA- The report said the police also detained 49 undocumented Syrian migrants in the Balıkesir province. 
 
Balıkesir’s coastal districts are among main illegal routes the migrants use to go to Greece, particularly to Lesbos island. 
 
The report said the coast guard units rounded up 38 Syrians, who were attempting to cross into Greece, in the Mediterranean province of Antalya.
 
The migrants, including women and children, were sent to regional immigration departments, the report said.
 
Turkey has been the main route for refugees trying to cross into Europe, especially since the beginning of a civil war in Syria and an escalating insecurity in Afghanistan.
