The border crossing between Rojava and southern Kurdistan will remain open from 30 May to 4 June.
The Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria has announced opening the Semelka border crossing for residents of the region to come back to Rojava from South Kurdistan.
According to the statement of the Autonomous Administration, the border crossing will remain open from 30 May to 4 June.
The Semelka border crossing between Rojava and southern Kurdistan (northern Iraq) had been closed on 14 March 2020 as part of measures to contain the outbreak and spread of coronavirus in the region. It was then opened only for commercial purposes.
According to a decree released by the Autonomous Administration on Tuesday, the Tabqa and Tahya border crossings in Manbij will be kept open for human needs while the other border crossings will be kept closed until a further notice.
