Turkish-backed forces are continuing their push into the Kurdish-held part of Syria as fighting continues along a 200-kilometer stretch in the North of the country. The Turkey-backed Free Syrian Army is reported to have taken the city Tell Abyad. Fighters there have been removing flags of Kurdish-backed troops in the area to raise their own flags in part of a coordinated push directed by the Turkish government after American forces started to withdraw from the region. While tens of thousands of people have been displaced inside northeast Syria since the offensive started, border residents in Turkey feel the impact too. At least 18 civilians have been killed in cross-border bombardments. DW correspondent Julia Hahn has this report on Turkish towns that have been hit by shelling.
