Added the lower figure based on this source: [1] Together with Armenians and Circassians, Turkomans form 1% of the Syrian population. Ellipi (talk) 14:50, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

There is a claim which says 200.000 Turkmens in Syria. That claim is unreliable of which might be of prediction. However, most of the resources claims there are more than 1 million Turkmens in Syria. I've already added those resources in the article. If you claim those resources as unrealible, then I will also delete the claim 200.000 because is also a news agency like the others which claim more than 1 million Turkmens in Syria. World population Review seems more reliable: which claims "The largest ethnic group (approximately 90%) in Syria is Arab, mostly classified as Levantine. Other major groups in Syria are Kurds (2 million), Syrian Turkmen (0.75-1.5 million) and Assyrians (0.9 to 1.2 million)." And that's another resource of academical studies on Syria: which includes the lists of all the villages and towns of Syrian Turkmens and gives demographical information. It's in Turkish. Anyway, most of the resources (news agencies, academical resources etc) claims they are more than 1 million. We should notice that fact. Closing your eyes doesn't change the fact, just lies yourself.

And let me remind you that ORSAM which is displayed as the resource is a member of MESA ( And that's the staff of ORSAM: So, do you still think of it being unreliable? (talk) 17:57, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Who is the author of this article on the population of Syria? It does not look very convincing as the total population of Syria is 20 million. 10% of non-Arabs is 2000000. And it's mostly Kurds. This resources a unrealible.
The Turkish source said that Syria 3.5 million Turks. They claim that in Homs, which is called Humus, Turks are the majority. All this does not seem very reliable sources. (talk) 12:49, 24 January 2014 (UTC)
Before removing the resource, you should prove the unreliablity of the related resource. That's the staff of ORSAM: also a member of member of MESA. On the other hand, the resource you added is very old and outdated, and it reflects the claims of Kurds and Assad regime, who seem to be contrary to Syrian Turkmens' rights.

They are Turkmen not Turks[edit]

Problem here. The article is about the Turkmen people of Syria (related to the Turkmen of Iraq and the people of Azerbaijain), but the article refers to them as "Turks" - confusing them with the Turkish people of the modern Republic of Turkey. This needs to be addressed. LiamFitzGilbert (talk) 04:07, 18 March 2013 (UTC)
