Civilians flee as Turkish forces attack

As Turkish soldiers launched an assault on U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters in northern Syria and panicked civilians fled the battle zone, the White House sought to tamp down intense criticism over what many view as Washington's acquiescence in the incursion.

Turkey's forces crossed the border on Wednesday, carrying out airstrikes and artillery barrages against the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish militia that has fought alongside the U.S. in efforts to dismantle the Islamic State in Syria.

Turkey accuses the SDF of having links with the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, a Kurdish separatist group based in Turkey and Iraq, which is responsible for years of violent attacks within Turkey.

TVNL Comment: This is ethnic cleansing, pure and simple.  Trump has sold out for his Trump Towers in Istanbul.  How can anyone still support this evil man?
