Schools in the Turkish border town of Akçakale remain closed as Turkey and Syria continue to trade artillery fire along their shared border.
Turkish students in the border town of Akçakale arrived at school on Monday morning hopeful to return to their classes after a three-week break amid the cross-border fighting with Syria.
But to their disappointment the school doors remained shut.
One girl said that the students miss their teachers and want to return to their lessons. She also said that many among them have relatives who have died or been wounded in the violence.
Fresh mortar fire from Syrian territory struck Akçakale on Sunday. There were no immediate reports of casualties from yesterday's strike, but just four days earlier five civilians in the town were killed by Syrian shelling.
Turkey retaliated with several attacks on Syrian military targets.
Damascus has maintained its shelling has only hit Turkey accidently.
