Casualties are increasing as Turkeys cross-border offensive on Kurdish-held areas of northern Syria continues. Latest reports say that at least 11 civilians have died and dozens of fighters from the Kurdish-led SDF and pro-Turkish factions have been killed with the first death of a Turkish soldier also being reported.

Meanwhile Republicans in the US House of Representatives have announced plans to introduce a sanctions bill against Turkey, and President Donald Trump has offered to mediate. Turkey moved into northern Syria on Wednesday after the president Donald Trump pulled US troops out of the area.
