2019 Turkish offensive into north-eastern Syria

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan says his country has launched a military invasion of northern and eastern Syria. The Kurdish YPG-led Syrian Democratic Forces say that Turkish fighter aircraft strike targets and "civilian areas". Syrian state television says the Turkish artillery shelling of Ras al-Ayn, al-Hasakah Governorate, is "random", and Ayn Issa, Raqqa Governorate, is also being shelled.
