Residents of Turkey’s southern city of Antakya near the Syrian border have expressed anger at the government for allowing the insurgents in Syria to freely travel in the city, Press TV reports.

The Antakya residents demanded that Ankara take necessary measures to deal with the issue of the presence of the insurgents in the city, located in Hatay province.
