Turkey begins a ground offensive in northeastern Syria

Published on October 10, 2019 by

Turkey has begun an invasion in northeastern Syria.
It is part of a major operation to clear the territory of Kurdish forces and militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the armed group of the Levant (ISIL or ISIS).
The world powers have condemned the move of Turkey and say that it is a humanitarian disaster.
But Ankara says it must protect its borders from the Kurdish Syrian democratic forces and create a safe zone for Syrian refugees living in Turkey.
