ANKARA, Turkey: An official says a man in a Turkish border town was hit in the head by a stray bullet fired during clashes between Syrian rebels and Kurdish gunmen in the Arab state.

The man is the third person in the past week to be wounded in the Turkish border town of Ceylanpinar by bullets from across the frontier in the Syrian town of Ras al-Ayn.

The Turkish official says the man was wounded Monday and is in serious condition. He spoke on condition of anonymity in line with government rules.

The U.N. says Syria's conflict has left at least 60,000 people dead since March 2011.

Fighters from the Kurdish Democratic Union Party, which leans in favor of Syria's government, have battled Syrian rebels sporadically since November to control Ras al-Ayn.
