Authorities shut down schools on Thursday in a Turkish border town due to renewed fighting between Syrian opposition fighters and Kurdish militants linked to the terrorist Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

Local authorities announced on Thursday morning that schools would be closed in Şanlıurfa's Ceylanpınar district due to fighting in the Ras al-Ayn district in Syria. The schools were shut down over security concerns while the conflict across the border caused anxiety on the Turkish side.
