Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has launched an operation against Kurdish-led militias in northeastern Syria. Ankara sees the Kurdish militias as terrorists and argues an offensive is needed to bring “peace” to the region.
The operation targets not only Kurdish-led militias, that Ankara believes to be affiliated with outlawed in Turkey Kurdistan Workers’ Parky (PKK) militant group, but Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) terrorists as well, according to Erdogan.

Just in: SDC official tells me the Turks have begun shelling the border towns. Evacuation of civilians is starting in some cases. "We are worried this will be a repeat of what happened in Afrin," the official said. "It will be a catastrophe."
