Spokesman Adrian Edwards says the agency’s offices in Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan and Iraq have all reported big increases this week in the number of people who have registered as refugees or are in the process of being registered.

He told reporters Friday in Geneva that in several countries, however, “we know there to be substantial refugee populations who have not yet registered.”

Edwards says Turkey’s population of Syrian refugees has reached 50,227, including more than 6,000 new arrivals this week alone, many from the besieged city of Aleppo.
