Syrian refugees, Turkey

I will be working in and around the syrian refugee camps in Turkey two weeks during next month. I will visit the camps around Hatay, and after that I will focus on the camps in Kilis and Ceylanpinar.
Anyone working there? Any problems to get into the camps? Finally, does anyone know about fixers in any of the places mentioned?
Thanks,
Horacio

getting into the camps is very, very difficult without some very serious connections in high places.

Getting into the camps is not possible, you need a permission of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Turkey take ± 6 weeks if they give one, better is to go insight Syria and just over the border are also camps under control of the FSA

18-01-2013 In Syria, a Belgian journalist killed. The Arabic TV station al-Arabiya reported that Yves Debay died when he reported on the fighting between the army and rebels in Aleppo.

On Facebook circulates a picture of what the deceased would have Debay. In an accompanying text says that he was shot by a sniper in the army.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Belgium, the death of Debay not confirm. Last year, 17 journalists and 44 bloggers in Syria killed.

I disagree. if they catch you, you’ll get deported and probably banned from Turkey. It might be possible to sneak in, but you should be aware of this.

Correct what Daniel is writing Giorgos Moutafis of AFP is deported and banned from Turkey he is a photographer from Greece and now persona non grata “an unwelcome person” for Turkey.

Just to keep in mind for those who plan to hop over from Turkey into the bloody mess in Syria:
