Syrian Territorial Problems - Turkish-Syrian dispute over Iskandaron (Hatay) Province

There is a deep rooted disagreement between Turkey and Syria over Hatay Province.

At present Syrians hold the view that this land is historically Syrian and was illegally ceded in the late 1930s to Turkey by France - the mandatory occupying power of Syria. The Turks remember Syria as a former Ottoman Turkish vilayet with embitterment. Contemporary Syria and Syrians still consider this land as integral Syrian territory. 60 000 Christian and alawite Syrians fled Iskandaron deeper into Syria after the area was ceded to Turkey in 1938. Syrians call this land Liwaaa aliskenderuna rather than the Turkish name of Hatay.
