- ℹ️ Description
The Turkish military are attacking fighters from the Kurdish People’s Protection Unit. There's been heavy fighting in the central border region. Some civilians have been killed and dozens more have been injured on both sides of the border.
Turkey says it aims to create a 32-kilometre-deep “safe zone” from its border for the return of Syrian refugees and push back Kurdish fighters, who have controlled the area since defeating Islamic State with the support from the US.
Around sixty thousand people have fled their homes in North Eastern Syria.
