DHAKA: Clashes broke out Wednesday between Syrian soldiers and opponents at the Tell Abyad border gate, a few hundred meters away from the Akçakale district of Turkey’s Şanlıurfa province.
Doğan news agency reported, says daily Hurriyet.
Opposition forces began to attack in the early morning to take over the border gate and opened intensive fire on buildings there.
Schools near the border in the Akçakale district were closed for the day due to the clashes, and authorities have warned locals to avoid going near the border with Syria.
