Turkish teachers began leaving Kurdish towns

SIRNAK (KDN) – Turkish teachers began leaving Kurdish Cizre, Nusaybin and other districts of the southeastern provinces of Şırnak and Mardin on Sunday, after they received text messages from the Ministry of Education saying that they will receive in-service training. As majority of the teachers left the town, schools remained empty on Monday.

In a calm atmosphere since Sunday evening, the shopkeepers opened shops in the morning across Cizre, where some curfews have been imposed recently due to clashes between Turkish terror state and members of Kurdish youth movement.
