A court in Turkey sentences opposition parliamentarian Remziye Tosun of the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) to ten years in prison for "membership in a terrorist organization" and "treating wounded Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) members" during clashes in 2016. Her lawyer rejects the verdict.
A car bomb in Turkish-controlled Suluk, Tell Abyad District, Raqqa Governorate, kills five people and wounds others. Turkey's defense ministry says the attack killed eight civilians and was by the PKK-YPG group.
Russia's Ministry of Defence accuses Turkey of preparing a military incursion into northern Syria, saying it had registered "a growing number of signs of hidden preparation of the Turkish Armed Forces for active actions on the territory of Syria". Tens of thousands of Turkish troops are active on the border of Syria involved in fighting the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
Fighting continues to rage between the Turkish Army and PKK militants across southeastern Turkey, with the Kurdish-majority cities of Cizre and Silopi both becoming war zones as street-to-street fighting takes place. Turkish tanks shelled civilian houses in Silopi, while a Turkish military helicopter was damaged by PKK fire as it attempted to land in Cizre. Also, two Turkish soldiers were killed and six others wounded in a roadside bombing near the town of Bitlis. Many within Turkey are saying a civil war is now underway.
