It is under real war.
North part of Turkey, especially borders are under control of opposition movement.
Nowadays border is closed. If you could manage to pass to Syrian side, opposition soldiers will not let you go beyond their land. If you pass, Esad's soldiers will accept you as a spy of Turkey or opposition movement.
So the scene is very serious... and I don't recommend you to try it at all... Of course if you want to be alive, if you want to suicide just go on...
