Several non-governmental organizations (NGO) in the Turkish bordertown of Ceylanpinar on Friday called for ceasefire in three languages in order for Syrian people to celebrate Ramadan Eid in peace.

Speaking at a press conference, the branch Chairman of Memur-Sen, union of public workers, Orhan Senlik said that they were dissapointed as their expectation for cease of clashes did not come true in Ramadan.

Reminding of a hadith by Prophet Mohamed, Senlik further said no nation is privileged over the other, and demanded bloodshed and clashes to stop by Eid.

In addition, Young Businessman Foundation Chairman Mehmey Yilmaz and Semerkant Foundation Chairman Ali Dondurmaci made the same call in Kurdish and Arabic.

Ceylanpinar witnesses the clashes, which have been ongoing for 17 days, between Democratic Union Party (PYD), a Kurdish group affiliated with PKK, and Al-Nusra Front in the Syrian border town of Ras Al-Ayn of Al-Hasakah city.

The gunshots have been heard from Ceylanpinar, where one man was killed when a stray rocket exploded on farming land on July, 26, and several others injured.

Security measures are still active on the border and Turkish army keeps guard with armored vehicles.
