The Turkish Coast Guard said that they found two dead children’s bodies, thought to be refugees, washed up on the western coast of the country on Tuesday.
The children were wearing life jackets when they were found by the Turkish fishermen near Cesme in the western province of Izmir.
No further information on the children have been released, but the coast guard said more than 200 people were rescued in the waters off western Turkey on Tuesday, as they tried to reach the Greek islands.
Turkish officials said that they had stepped up their search and rescue operations in the Aegean Sea in anticipation of strong storms on Wednesday and Thursday.
Thousands of refugees and asylum seekers are trying to reach Europe through the Greek islands.
According to UNICEF, around 185 refugee children have died in the seas between Turkey and Greece so far this year.
According to the International Organisation for Migration, 878,000 asylum seekers have crossed the Mediterranean in 2015. Nearly 600 have died in the waters between Greece and Turkey.
