Turkey has launched a military offensive against the Kurdish-led forces

The West’s Syrian Kurdish allies announced on Wednesday that they were halting all operations against Isil as they rushed their forces to face the long-awaited Turkish assault on northeast Syria.

Turkey unleashed a wave of airstrikes and artillery bombardment against the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) along the Turkish border but also struck deeper inside Syria, possibly indicating a wider offensive than initially expected.
