Turkish incursion in Syria displaces 38,000 in one week
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Sunday that Turkish incursion in northeastern Syria’s Idlib region has displaced 38,000 civilians in less than a week. This has been accompanied by several Syrian regime and Russian airstrikes which hit areas across Idlib.
At least 19 civilians, including 8 children, were killed during the airstrikes.
The latest Turkish affront on the region began after Trump moved US troops out of the way after a phone call with Erdogan on Oct.6.
The Turkish claim that it’s latest move would push back the YPG militia which Ankara deems a terrorist organization however many of those affected are Kurdish civilians.
