Encountering hundreds of thousands of Syrian ghosts

KILIS, TURKEY – Every war has its hotels, its lounges, its press rooms, its conduits that funnel the press to and from where the choreographed elements are.

For the Turkish border crisis with Syria, and to a certain extent the entire Syrian civil war in general since 2012, the point of interest has been Kilis. It was portrayed to me before I went there as either a sleepy, boring, ugly border town, or a place of intrigue. There is always some “helpful” suggestion, such as “be careful, Islamic State is active, don’t tell people where you are from or where you are staying.”
