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.
