100 Syrians flee to Turkish border after clashes

World Bulletin / News Desk

A group of about 100 Syrians came on Wednesday up to the Turkish-Syrian border, escaping the clashes in Ras Al Ayn of Syria's Al Hasakah province.

Clashes between Al-Nusra Front and Syrian Democratic Union Party (PYD), a Kurdish group affiliated with PKK, ongoing for over a week, are escalating in several Syrian cities, turning violent off and on.

Following the mortar shells poured on the PYD headquarters near Turkish-Syrian border earlier on Wednesday, a group of nearly 100 Syrians, including women and children, fleed to the cross-border area in Turkey's Ceylanpinar town of Sanliurfa province.

The group is being kept at the border by Turkish Armed Forces' troops.

Security measures prevail in the border town.
