With the support of Turkey, two sports and youth centers were opened in Tel Abyad and Rasulayn districts, which were cleared of terrorist organizations with Operation Peace Spring.
Turkey’s investments in the field of sports continue in order to raise a healthy and terror-free generation in the districts of Tel Abyad and Rasulayn in Syria, across the Akçakale and Ceylanpınar districts of Şanlıurfa.
Turkey broke new ground with sports and youth centers in both districts.
The centers that have been opened include a stadium, a swimming pool, and classes for young people where chess, computer and music training can be given.
In addition, basketball and volleyball courts in the Tel Abyad sports complex were offered to the youth.
Şanlıurfa Governor Abdullah Erin, Deputy Governor Oğuzhan Erdi Atak, Youth Services General Manager of the Ministry of Youth and Sports Emre Topoğlu, Tel Abayd and Rasulayn Local Council Presidents Salih Hac Abdullah and Muhammed Hoşu attended the opening ceremony held in both districts.
At the opening ceremony, which started with local songs, a show was presented by young gymnasts.
In his speech before the ribbon cutting ceremony, Governor Erin thanked all the personnel and institutions that contributed to the completion of the two youth centers and wished these investments to be beneficial.
Erin said that thanks to the Turkish and Syrian security forces, the people of Tel Abyad and Rasulayn live in a safe and peaceful environment away from terrorism.
Stating that the terrorist organization YPG/PKK destroyed infrastructure and superstructures and public service buildings in the region, Governor Erin stated that Turkey, on the contrary, has taken the necessary steps for the development and reconstruction of the region and will continue to do so.
Erin cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony in Tel Abyad and Rasulayn districts and toured the stadiums and music and computer classes in youth centers.
Governor Erin, who started the friendly matches between Tel Abyadlı and Rasulayn football teams with the first pass, distributed gifts to the players and children in the stadium.
