Turkey provides Syrians with opportunity to study Turkish language

With Turkey’s support, courses on both religion and the Turkish language are available for the residents in the Syrian towns of Tal Abyad and Ras al-Ain.

Locals of the towns, which were liberated from the PKK terrorist group’s Syrian offshoot, the YPG, during Turkey’s Operation Peace Spring in 2019, demanded access to language and religious courses.

A statement released by the Governorate of Şanlıurfa on Turkey’s southeastern border said that the teaching of the Quran and Islam would be carried out with the support of the Şanlıurfa Provincial Office of Mufti.

Nearly 240 students who achieved academic success have been awarded by the officials.

Moreover, the Turkish language courses put together by Public Education Centers have become popular among locals. Teachers and local security forces also attend the Turkish courses with the support of Yunus Emre Institute (YEE), a Turkish cultural institution established in 2007,

Turkey launched Operation Peace Spring on Oct. 9, 2019, to eliminate terrorists from northern Syria east of the Euphrates to secure Turkey’s borders, aid in the safe return of Syrian refugees and ensure Syria’s territorial integrity.
