- The US military is warning Turkey that its incursion into Syria could jeopardize progress in defeating the so-called "Islamic State." Kurdish-led forces in the region say they can't keep ISIS prisoners contained and hold back the Turkish military. The US defense department is calling on its NATO ally to halt operations, and US President Trump has threatened economic sanctions. There has already been one explosion near an outpost of US Special Forces. And the UN says 100,000 civilians have fled their homes since the offensive began three days ago.
