Turkish ground forces cross Syria border

After air and artillery strikes throughout the day, the Turkish ground forces have launched a land offensive in north-east Syria against military positions of the Kurdish militia within the operation started earlier in the day, the Turkish Ministry of Defense announced.

"Our heroic Turkish Armed Forces and the Syrian National Army started a land operation to the east of the Euphrates within the scope of the Peace Spring Operation," the Ministry wrote on its Twitter account on Wednesday.

Turkey is facing a backlash from the international community over the military action which already claimed several civilian lives.
