Turkish border guards are killing and injuring Syrian refugees trying to enter Turkey.

And there's video evidence, from Human Rights Watch.

The video shows guards pushing refugees back despite the country's claims of welcoming them with an open-door policy. It also shows the bodies of Syrian refugees who have been beaten.

Be warned: This video is graphic and hard to watch.

So far, five people have been killed, including a three-year-old.

And Syrians living near the border say they have been shot at by the guards while they were trying to recover the bodies.

Turkey denies these allegations.

And Syrian refugees at the Turkish border face another horror: ISIS.
