Turkey unleashes airstrikes against Kurds in north-east Syria | The Guardian

Turkey just launched an attack into north-eastern Syria aiming for US-backed Kurdish forces, but civilians were caught in the middle of the airstrikes. Video footage shows towns covered in smoke, and reports say that seven civilians have already been killed. The attack was triggered just after president Trump said he would withdraw troops from the region, and the UN security council is preparing to meet later this week to discuss if it should take action. Turkey claims that it is conducting its strike on Kurdish groups and Isis to prevent terror at their borders, but now they are being held responsible for keeping all Isis prisoners captive and not allowing Isis to reconstitute.
