Topic: Turkey's offensive in Syria

Episode: 394

Topic Description:

An estimated 100,000 people have fled their homes in northeast Syria as Turkey pressed on with its offensive against Kurdish fighters. Turkey's air and ground operation into Syria came after US President Donald Trump, pulled American troops from their positions near the border, leaving the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) vulnerable to a Turkish assault. Turkey insists it is targeting "terrorist positions" and shows the "utmost caution" to avoid targeting civilians and infrastructure during its operation. However aid officials have warned of "yet another humanitarian crisis" in war-torn Syria. Despite growing international criticism of the campaign and concerns it could result in Islamic State terrorist group’s resurgence…. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has pledged to continue with the assault, whose stated goal is to create a buffer zone freed of the Kurdish fighters within which some of the 3.6 million refugees currently living in Turkey can also be resettled.
