Turkish man killed stray bullet fired from Syria

PanARMENIAN.Net - A Turkish man was killed on Saturday, Aug 3 by a stray bullet fired across the border from Syria into the town of Ceylanpinar, security sources said, according to Today’s Zaman.

As clashes between Kurdish militants and several radical groups fighting to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad continued in Ras al-Ain on Saturday, Ramazan Zeybel was hit by stray bullets in the chest.

Zeybel, 45, died in hospital. He was the fourth Turkish citizen to be killed by stray shells and bullets fired during clashes in the neighboring Syrian town of Ras al-Ain.

With an ethnic mix of Arabs, Kurds and others, Ras al-Ain has been a focus of clashes for months, with Kurdish militias fighting for control against Arab rebel fighters from the al Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front.
