Turkish forces clash with Kurdish fighters in Syria - BBC News

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
Around sixty thousand people have fled their homes in North Eastern Syria on the second day of a major air and ground assault by Turkish forces. 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's President Erdogan regards the Kurdish fighters in Syria as terrorists - he claims more than a hundred have been killed.

Turkey is trying to seize land just inside the border to create what it claims is a "safe zone" in Syria to settle some of the millions of Syrian refugees who have fled the eight-year war.

Sophie Raworth presents a roundup of the day's news with the BBC's International Correspondent Orla Guerin, Middle East Correspondent Quentin Sommerville and North America Editor Jon Sopel.

َقَدْ مَكَرُوا مَكْرَهُمْ وَعِنْدَ اللَّهِ مَكْرُهُمْ وَإِنْ كَانَ مَكْرُهُمْ لِتَزُولَ مِنْهُ الْجِبَالُ

Indeed, they planned their plot, and their plot was with Allah, though their plot was a great (one, still) it would never be able to remove the mountains (real mountains or the Islamic law) from their places (as it is of no importance)

فَلَا تَحْسَبَنَّ اللَّهَ مُخْلِفَ وَعْدِهِ رُسُلَهُ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ ذُو انْتِقَامٍ

So think not that Allah will fail to keep His Promise to His Messengers. Certainly, Allah is All-Mighty, - All-Able of Retribution.
(Ibrahim 14:47)

That's a laugh coming from the British ISIS fighter saying that prisoners have rights. ISIS used to slice of the heads of their prisoners.
