Turkish forces clash with Kurdish fighters in Syria - BBC News

  • Published on Oct 10, 2019
  • 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.

    You are confusing Turkish army with EU/USA/Israel armies. YOU are the ones who kill bomb rape innocent civillians all over the world. Turkish army only fights terrorists. Turkish army doesnt bomb complete towns and villages like USA does. WTF is USA doing in northern Syria???? What reason are they there???? Answer: nothing but stealing the oil of Syrian Republic. They give weapons to the dumb ypg and take the oil. WHO gave YPG the right to sell the oil of Syria??? = you are the biggest scum of the world. Thieves, murderers, rapists,.

    the terrorist turkish army must first get the fuck out from Kurdish citys in south east turkey on syrian and iraqi border and then try and fuck with the Kurds in north east syria or in north west iraq which are not territorys of turkey at all. the terrorist facist erdogan and his turkish government are against the ethnicity of the Kurds and a Kurdish land just like they were in ww1 in the time of gay mustafa kemal when he made a deal with sykes picot to steal the land of the Kurds kill them and displace them.

      Turkey didn’t want to fight ISIS in a whole, but the kurds did. So the Americans cooperated with the kurds instead.
      Recent video footage shows turkish soldiers talking about being “holy warriors” as they shout “alluah akbar” just like godamn terrorists.

    Since the begging of the Syrian war Turkey has supplied ISIS, AL-Qaeda and many other jihadist terrorist to fight Assad and then the Kurds, so when Erdogan lost against both Assad and the Kurds, he is now using his own army to finish the job he has started. Shame on the world that just stands idly by and watch it happen.
