World News - Hundreds of thousands flee Turkey's incursion into northern Syria

Hundreds of thousands flee Turkey's incursion into northern Syria

Turkey military operation in northern Syria has created a fresh wave of refugees. Around 200,000 civilians have so far fled the violence, some of them making it to neighbouring Iraq. Turkey tried to justify the operation by saying it wanted to create what it calls a 30 kilometre deep "safe zone" along its long border with Syria. A five-day ceasefire was declared this week after US intervention. "We have no hope about a ceasefire," one Kurd called Mohammed said after arriving in Dohuk, a mostly Kurdish city in northern Iraq. "Planes are still pounding and destroying the country." During the ceasefire, the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) militia are meant to pull out of the zone. Meanwhile, there is a security scare over the thousands of so-called Islamic State (IS) captives guarded by the Kurdish YPG militia who've been targeted in Turkey's assault. Turkey has for a long time called Syrian Kurds who have been fighting IS with the backing of the US military "terrorists". And in its pursuit of these fighters there are now fears that Turkey's invasion could end up ethnically cleansing the Kurdish population from its border with northern Syria. Ankara says it also wants to return to two million Syrian refugees — roughly half the number it is currently hosting — to settle in the safe zone.

Fighting continues near Turkey-Syria border

Turkish forces and Kurdish fighters were battling heavily on Wednesday over the border town of Ras al-Ayn on the Turkey/Syria border. Turkey had announced it captured the town days ago, but its hold now appears uncertain as the Kurds fight back. The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitor, reported that the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) launched a counter-offensive against Turkish troops and Turkey-backed opposition fighters in the town, triggering intense fighting. The SDF said Kurdish special forces were taking part in the street battles on Wednesday. Turkey began its military operation against Kurdish fighters in northern Syria a week ago.

Good Morning Europe - French foreign minister travels to Iraq to push for local trials of European ISIS fighters

French foreign minister travels to Iraq to push for local trials of European ISIS fighters

France's foreign minister will travel to Iraq today to discuss trials for Islamic State fighters from Syria. European countries are trying to fast-track a plan to move thousands of foreign militants out of Syrian prison camps and into Iraq. Foreign Minister Jean-Ives Le Drian will spearhead talks with the Iraqi government to try and create a legal framework to oversee the trials. The Iraqi government is seeking millions of dollars in financial compensation for taking European fighters.

Iraq saw some of the bloodiest battles against Islamic State and its government is already conducting trials of thousands of suspected insurgents. Le Drian said nine French women had escaped on Sunday from the Ain Issa camp in northwestern Syria. Kurdish officials have said almost 800 people fled that camp after the Turkish offensive into northern Syria targeted the area. Le Drian said women who had joined Islamic State should also face justice in the region, although Paris would look to bring back children. "The French women who went to this region in 2015 knew what they were doing. They aren't tourists. They are fighters against France and must face trial (in Iraq) if possible," he said.
