BEIRUT (AP) — The Latest developments following President Donald Trump’s decision to abandon Syrian Kurdish fighters ahead of Turkish offensive into northeastern Syria (all times local): 10:55 p.m. The Arab League says foreign ministers from around the region will meet to discuss Turkey’s military operation in northern Syria. Hossam Zaki, deputy secretary general of the pan-Arab organization, says Wednesday the meeting will take place in Cairo on Saturday. The meeting comes after Egypt called for an emergency meeting of the Arab League to discuss Turkey’s “blatant aggression” against Syria’s sovereignty. ___ 10:45 p.m. Turkey’s Defense Ministry says Turkish ground forces have moved across the border to fight against Kurdish fighters in northeastern Syria, hours after Turkish jets and artillery pounded areas in Syria’s northern border. The ministry said Turkish troops, joined by allied Syrian opposition forces, moved into Syria on Wednesday. It did not provide further details. Turkey’s offensive — named Operation Peace Spring —came after U.S. President Donald Trump agreed to withdraw American troops from the area, paving the way for an assault on forces that have long been allied with the United States. Turkey aims to create a so-called “safe zone” that would be cleared of Kurdish fighters — that Ankara considers to be terrorists and an extention of Kurdish rebels fighting inside Turkey — and eventually allow for the return of refugees. ___ 10:35 p.m. A Syrian war monitor and an activist collective in Kurdish-held areas say at least seven civilians have been killed in Turkish strikes in northeastern Syria. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the death toll at eight, including two Christian Assyrians in the city of Qamishli, a husband and wife and their child as well as another man in a village outside of the town of Tal Abyad, and a child in a village west of Qamishli. Also killed was a man in Ras al-Ayn, it said. The Rojava Information Center, an activist collective in northeast Syria, counted seven killed. The Observatory said at least seven fighters from the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces were killed in the fighting. The Rojava center put the death toll at three. Turkey began a military operation against Kurdish fighters Wednesday targeting areas in northeast Syria with airstrikes and artillery shelling. ___ 9:20 p.m. U.N. diplomats say the Security Council will hold a closed meeting Thursday on Turkey’s military action in northeast Syria. The five European nations on the council — France, United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium and Poland — requested the meeting on Wednesday, the diplomats said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because discussions were private. The meeting will take place after Thursday morning’s scheduled meeting on Colombia, the diplomats said. — By Edith M. Lederer ___ 8:15 p.m. President Donald Trump says the U.S. does not endorse Turkey’s assault on northern Syria and has made it clear to Ankara that its incursion against Kurdish fighters who helped the U.S. battle the Islamic State is a “bad idea.” In a statement Wednesday, Trump said no American soldiers are in the area being invaded. Earlier, Trump ordered U.S. forces out of the area, prompting criticism that he was abandoning an American ally. Trump says he does not want the U.S. to fight “these endless, senseless wars.” He says he will hold Turkey to its commitment to protect civilians and religious minorities, including Christians, and ensure the invasion does not create a humanitarian crisis. He also says Turkey must make sure that IS fighters held captive in Syria remain detained. ___ 8:05 p.m. A U.S. defense official and a Kurdish official in Syria say the American-backed Syrian militia being attacked by Turkish forces has suspended operations against the Islamic State group. The militia, known as the Syrian Democratic Forces, has been moving into position to contest the Turkish onslaught, which so far includes airstrikes and artillery barrages. The officials who confirmed the SDF suspension of operations against the Islamic State were not authorized to provide details on the unfolding situation and so spoke on condition of anonymity. The U.S. defense official said an incursion by Turkish ground forces had not yet begun but was expected soon. — By Robert Burns ___ 7:25 p.m. Egypt has condemned Turkey’s military operation into northern Syria, calling it an “aggression” against Syria’s sovereignty. Egypt’s Foreign Ministry in a statement Wednesday condemned “in the strongest words” the offensive and called for the U.N. Security Council to halt “any attempts to occupy Syrian territories . or change the demographics in northern Syria.” The statement says Turkey’s attack is a “blatant aggression” against Syria’s sovereignty. It also calls for an emergency meeting of the Arab League. ____ 7:05 p.m. A Syrian war monitor and a Kurdish activist collective say Turkish bombardment of northern Syria has killed at least one member of the Kurdish-led force. The Britain-based Syrian observatory for Human Rights said one fighter of the U.S.-backed Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces was killed and six others were wounded. The Rojava Information center, an activist collective in northeast Syria confirmed that an SDF fighter was killed in the border Syrian town of Ras al-Ayn. Turkey began a military operation against Kurdish fighters Wednesday targeting areas in northeast Syria with airstrikes and artillery shelling. The SDF said in a statement that the Turkish airstrikes reached as deep as 50 kilometers (31 miles) from the border. It said 16 SDF positions were targeted. ___ 6:20 p.m. Germany’s foreign minister is condemning Turkey’s offensive in northern Syria and called on Ankara to end the military action, saying it threatened “a further humanitarian catastrophe and further displacement of persons.” Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said in a statement Wednesday that “we condemn the Turkish offensive in the northeast of Syria in the strongest possible terms. ” He said Turkey was running the risk that it would “further destabilize the region and strengthen IS,” referring to the so-called Islamic State group. Maas said that Syria needed stability after eight years of war and that the first step should be to summon a constitutional committee in the near future: “We call on Turkey to end its offensive and to pursue its security interests in a peaceful manner. ” ____ 6:15 p.m. The secretary-general of NATO is urging Turkey not to “further destabilize the region” through its military action in northern Syria. Jens Stoltenberg told a news conference in Rome that Turkey, a NATO ally, “has legitimate security concerns,” having suffered “horrendous terrorist attacks” and hosting thousands of refugees. He said NATO has been informed about Turkey’s ongoing operation in northern Syria. And he added “it is important to avoid actions that may further destabilize the region, escalate tensions and cause more human suffering.” He said Turkey should act with “restraint” and any action should be “proportionate.” Stoltenberg will discuss the military action with Turkey’s leader on Friday in Istanbul. ___ 6 p.m. Turkey’s state-run news agency says two mortar shells have been fired into a Turkish town, on the border with Syria. No one was hurt in the attack. Anadolu Agency said shells hit the town of Ceylanpinar on Wednesday. They were fired from the Syrian Kurdish town of Ras al-Ayn, Anadolu reported, shortly after Turkey launched a military operation aiming to drive Syrian Kurdish forces away from Turkey’s border. Meanwhile, Turkish authorities declared an area along the Turkish-Syrian border off-limits to civilians. ___ 5:35 p.m. Turkey’s state-run news agency says Turkish artillery units are shelling suspected Syrian Kurdish forces targets across the border in the Syrian town of Tal Abyad. Anadolu Agency said howitzers pounded the town Wednesday after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the start of a Turkish military operation against Kurdish fighters in northeastern Syria. Turkey’s Defense Ministry said the offensive started at 4 p.m. (1300 GMT). Earlier, Turkish television reports said Turkish jets were carrying out airstrikes on Syrian Kurdish positions in the town of Tal Abyad and showed smoke billowing from the targeted areas. Turkey’s Foreign Ministry said ambassadors of the United Nations Security Council’s five permanent members, including U.S. ambassador David Satterfield, were being briefed on the operation. ___ 5:25 p.m. A top European Union official is calling on Turkey to halt its military operation in northern Syria and is warning that the EU will not be paying to help Ankara set up any safe zone there. Speaking to EU lawmakers Wednesday, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said: “I call on Turkey as well as on the other actors to act with restraint and to stop operations already, as we are speaking, underway.” While acknowledging that Turkey has security concerns on its border with Syria, Juncker says that “if the Turkish plan involves the creation of a so-called safe zone, don’t expect the European Union to pay for any of it.” The EU is paying Turkey 6 billion euros ($6.6 billion) to help the country cope with almost 4 million Syrian refugees on its territory in exchange for stopping migrants leaving for Europe. But Ankara is seeking more money amid concerns that thousands of Syrians could soon cross its border ___ 4:35 p.m. A spokesman for the U.S.-backed Kurdish-led force in northern Syria says Turkish warplanes have started targeting “civilian areas” in northern Syria. Mustafa Bali of the Syrian Democratic Forces says the airstrikes have caused “a huge panic among people of the region.” Bali’s tweet on Wednesday afternoon came shortly after Turkish President Erdogan announced in a tweet that a Turkish military offensive into northeast Syria has started. Turkey has been massing troops for days in preparation for an attack against Kurdish fighters in northeast Syria that Ankara considers a terrorist organization. ___ 4:30 p.m. A U.S. official says the Turkish airstrikes in northeastern Syria are not coordinated with the U.S. military and are considered dangerous for the coalition forces and civilians in the area. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief reporters. Turkey’s President Erdogan announced airstrikes began in Kurdish-controlled areas of northeastern Syria on Wednesday. — By Sarah El Deeb. ___ 4:25 p.m. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced that a Turkish military operation into Syria has started. Erdogan said on his official Twitter account Wednesday that the operation, named “Peace Spring,” has begun. He said the operation aims to eradicate “the threat of terror” against Turkey. Earlier, Turkish television reports said Turkish jets had bombed Syrian Kurdish positions across the border from Turkey. Turkey had long threatened an attack on the Kurdish fighters whom Ankara considers to terrorists and an extention of Trump agreed to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria and hand control to Turkey ___ 4:10 p.m. President Donald Trump is defending his decision to pull back U.S. troops from northeastern Syria, citing a focus on the “BIG PICTURE!” Trump tweets Wednesday that “GOING INTO THE MIDDLE EAST IS THE WORST DECISION EVER MADE IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY!” Trump says “stupid endless wars, for us, are ending!” and he is “slowly & carefully” bringing U.S. troops home. But the decision to leave Syrian Kurds — who supported the U.S. in the fight against Islamic State militants — vulnerable to a military onslaught from Turkey has been condemned by some of Trump’s staunchest Republican allies. Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday that such a move would be Trump’s “biggest mistake” as president. ___ 3:35 p.m. The U.S-backed Syrian Kurdish group is calling on Moscow to broker talks with the Syrian government in Damascus, in light of Turkey’s planned military invasion in northeastern Syria. The Syrian Kurdish-led administration says in a statement on Wednesday that it’s responding positively to calls from Moscow encouraging the Kurds and the Syrian government to settle their difference through talks. A Syrian Kurdish official also says they have reached out to Damascus “and other parties” ahead of the anticipated Turkish operation. The official declined to provide details and said no agreement has been reached yet. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak to reporters. The call for talks with Damascus reflect the Kurdish forces’ desperate outreach after a partial U.S. pullback, leaving them exposed to Turkish attack. —Sarah El Deeb in Beirut; ___ 3:05 p.m. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has discussed his plans for an incursion into northeastern Syria with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Erdogan’s office said the Turkish leader told his Russian counterpart in a phone call on Wednesday that Ankara’s planned military action in the region east of the Euphrates River “will contribute to the peace and stability” and also “pave the way for a political process” in Syria. Erdogan added that Ankara attached importance to the protection of rights and interests of the Syrian people and that Turkey “appreciated the constructive attitude” of Russia in the matter. ___ 2:40 p.m. Syria’s Foreign Ministry has condemned plans by Turkey to invade northeastern Syria, calling it a “blatant violation” of international law and vowing to repel the incursion with all means. The ministry’s statement on Wednesday blamed some Kurdish groups for what is happening, saying they were used as a tool to help an alleged “American project.” It said that Syria is ready to welcome back its “stray sons if they return to their senses,” referring to the pro-U.S. Kurdish fighters The ministry says the announcements surrounding the planned invasion reflect Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s “hostile behavior” and Ankara’s expansionist ambitions in Syria. Turkey has been massing troops along its border with Syria ahead of an imminent military operation against the Syrian Kurdish fighters. ___ 2:30 p.m. Turkey’s foreign minister says his country will inform Syria, the United Nations and others about an expected Turkish incursion into northern Syria. Mevlut Cavusoglu claims the planned foray into the region is in line with international laws concerning Turkey’s right to defend itself. He spoke during a visit to Algeria on Wednesday. Cavusoglu says that Ankara “will provide information to the United States and other countries, including Syria, in line with international laws.” He added that Turkey’s “only target are terrorists” in northeast Syria and that the incursion would be Ankara’s way to “contribute to Syria’s border integrity.” Expectations of a Turkish invasion rose after President Donald Trump on Sunday abruptly announced that American troops would step aside ahead of a Turkish push. ___ 2:25 p.m. A spokesman for the Syrian Kurdish-led fighters says “all options are open” if Turkey invades northeastern Syria. Kino Gabriel, a spokesman for the U.S-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, said on Wednesday that the Kurdish-led fighters will use all their capabilities to fight back. He says the Kurdish forces are also leaving the door open for cooperation with the Syrian government or other regional powers to defend the area. He didn’t elaborate. Gabriel says that the Syrian Kurdish-led forces control about 30% of Syria. He says there are currently no contacts with the government side. Syrian troops, backed by Russia and Iran, have presence to the south and west of the Kurdish-held territories. ___ 1 p.m. The head of the Arab League says he is alarmed at Turkey’s planned military offensive into northeastern Syria, against the Syrian Kurdish fighters there. Ahmed Aboul Gheit said in a statement on Wednesday that such an invasion would be a “blatant violation of Syria’s sovereignty and threatens Syria’s integrity.” He added that Turkey’s planned incursion also threatens to inflame further conflicts in eastern and northern Syria, and “could allow for the revival” of the Islamic State group. Turkey has been preparing for an attack on the Kurdish fighters in Syria whom Ankara considers terrorists allied with a Kurdish insurgency within Turkey. This came after President Donald Trump said earlier this week the U.S. would step aside for an expected Turkish attack on Syrian Kurdish fighters, who have fought alongside Americans for years. ___ 12:30 p.m. Turkey’s defense minister says preparations for an expected Turkish incursion into Syria are continuing. Hulusi Akar made the comments on Wednesday, days after President Donald Trump abruptly announced that American troops would step aside to allow for a Turkish push into northeastern Syria. Turkey has long threatened an attack on the Kurdish fighters in Syria whom Ankara considers terrorists allied with a Kurdish insurgency within Turkey Akar told state-run Anadolu Agency: “Our efforts concerning the offensive are continuing, the deployment, the preparations are continuing.” ___ 11:20 a.m. Iranian state television says the Islamic Republic has launched a surprise military drill with army special operations forces near the country’s border with Turkey. The exercise comes amid Iran’s opposition to Turkey’s planned invasion of northern Syria against Syrian Kurdish fighters there. The Syrian Kurds were U.S. allies in the war against the Islamic State group. The sudden Iranian drill was announced on Wednesday. The TV report says it’s overseen by Maj. Gen. Abdolrahim Mousavi, chief of Iran’s army. However, the state TV didn’t mention the expected Turkish operation nor elaborate on the number of troops taking part in the drill in Qushchi in Iran’s Western Azerbaijan province. The area is about 620 kilometers, or 385 miles, northwest of Tehran. Iran and Russia are both key allies of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s long-embattled government. Both have troops on the ground in Syria. While they may publicly oppose a Turkish incursion into Syria, they probably don’t mind an operation that diminishes the Kurdish forces. ___ 11:10 a.m. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is accusing the United States of playing “very dangerous games” with the Syrian Kurds, whose fighters were top U.S. allies in the war against the Islamic State group in Syria. Lavrov said during a visit to Kazakhstan on Wednesday that the U.S. first propped up the Syrian Kurdish “quasi state” in northeastern Syria and is now withdrawing its support. He says that “such reckless attitude to this highly sensitive subject can set fire to the entire region, and we have to avoid it at any cost.” Russian news agencies carried Lavrov’s comments and reported that Moscow has communicated that position Washington. Lavrov didn’t directly address the issue of Turkey’s anticipated invasion into northeastern Syria but said that Moscow is encouraging the Kurds and the Syrian government to settle their difference through talks. The top Russian diplomat stressed that both Damascus and the Syrian Kurds have said they are “open to dialogue, and we will do our best to help launch talks on this subject.” ___ 10:30 a.m. The Kurdish-led civilian administration in northeastern Syria has issued a “general mobilization” call along the border with Turkey, as Ankara masses troops ahead of an imminent invasion. The local authority, known as the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria, says: “We call upon our people, of all ethnic groups, to move toward areas close to the border with Turkey to carry out acts of resistance during this sensitive historical time.” It also called on the international community to live up to its responsibilities as “a humanitarian catastrophe might befall our people” in northeastern Syria. Turkey has been preparing for an attack on the Kurdish fighters in Syria whom Ankara considers terrorists allied with a Kurdish insurgency within Turkey. President Donald Trump on Sunday abruptly announced American troops would step aside ahead of the Turkish push — a shift in U.S. policy that essentially abandoned the Syrian Kurds, longtime U.S. allies in the fight against the Islamic State group. ___ 9:40 a.m. A top Turkish official says Turkey’s military will “shortly” cross into Syria together with allied Syrian rebel forces after President Donald Trump announced U.S. troops would withdraw from the area. Fahrettin Altun, the Turkish presidency’s communications director, called on the international community in a Washington Post op-ed on Wednesday “to rally” behind Ankara. Altun says Turkey seeks to “neutralize” Syrian Kurdish fighters in northeastern Syria and to “liberate the local population from the yoke of the armed thugs.” He wrote: “The Turkish military, together with the Free Syrian Army, will cross the Turkish-Syrian border shortly.” Turkey considers the Syrian Kurdish fighters, allied with American forces in the fight against IS, as terrorists linked to outlawed Kurdish rebels within Turkey. ___ 9:30 a.m. A U.S.-backed force and two Syrian activist groups say Islamic State militants have carried out an attack in the city of Raqqa in northern Syria. The early Wednesday attack targeted a post of the U.S.-backed Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces in Raqqa, which was once the extremists’ de facto capital. The attack comes as Turkey is expected to launch an offensive against the Kurdish fighters in northeastern Syria. The Kurdish fighters say IS launched three suicide attacks against its positions in Raqqa. There was no word on casualties. Raqqa is being Silently Slaughtered, an activist collective, reported an exchange of fire and a blast. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitoring group, says the attack involved two IS fighters who engaged in a shootout before blowing themselves up.

realDonaldTrump LindseyGrahamSC sntmajldr How about some true 'transparency'!!!!! 45, why did you REALLY pull our troops? Stupidity? Ego? More $$ in your pocket? Blackmail? Mitch and Lindsey, what is your excuse for continuing to support 45? Too bad Trump’s words mean absolutely nothing!

Trump is a murderer sheilaaj Score: Erdogan/Trump 7 ... Kurdish civilians 0 Somewhere over there an innocent child is a victim of all this and will grow to hate us. When the chickens come home to roost, we shouldn’t be surprised. KurdsBetrayedByTrump Trump is earning his Istanbul Trump Towers & his Lords Putin's approval.

.realDonaldTrump KurdsBetrayed KurdsBetrayedByGOP GOPComplicitTraitors Turks are Well experienced with genocide. They had a lot of practice. Like on Armenians. Trump didnt abandon Syria, he was forced to leave. Turks vowed to fight against US troops in Syria 3 days ago. He made this decision to refrain a clash with Turkey.

Trump needs to be held accountable for these and future deaths of innocents!😡 So why are we letting Turkey invade Syria?

USA has blood in its hands. Tricked Kurds to help fight against ISIS and instead stabbed them in the back. Left them alone in the battlefield. Is that American exceptionalism? realDonaldTrump is willing to sacrifice our allies in order to protect his crime family’s business interests in Turkey! ImpeachTrump AnyoneButTrump2020

Well, since the US, is betraying it's allies. i guess I better start writing my Canadian leaders. This is heartbreaking. Impeachment Will Save the World! ImpeachmentWillSavetheWorld bencnn Fake news always Nice photo. Hey realDonaldTrump Your actions are now killing innocent Syrian civilians. Was that part of a campaign promise too? Or just collateral damage....

wakeup world Let em fight their own battles. Congrats, SenateGOP .

TrumpGenocide KurdsBetrayedByTrump TraitorTrump GOPGenocide KurdsBetrayedByGOP LindseyGenocide ComplicitCorruptGOP DoNothingRepublicans not nice. They watched Kobane in the past be under siege by ISIS and did nothing. WE can expect them to purge that city soon. Turkey was needed tow or three years ago to do any good. Now they will enable Iran and ISIS ensuring more instability and death.

A hahahah pkk ypg terrorist propoganda at best! I have seen this movie before! 😂😂😂 Did any of you care when Obama let 10s of thousands christians get slaughtered in Syria ... no ? Well free to enlist .. if not sit down . America is done fighting useless wars You shamelessly lie War. Great. Not This is on you thumper trump. You have no shame!

Have you confirmed civilian casualties? YPG counts their militia fighters also as civilians. We are familiar with their lies.

This is so heartbreaking TrumpGenocide GopGenocide This is on Trump and the Republicans. Stop him. Impeach UnfitForOffice Syria All these replies of outrage, where was the outrage of Bashar killing his own people? Turkey is the only country trying to set up a safe zone for Syrians to not have to live in constant fear.

Now Trump is both a traitor and a war criminal. So the death toll caused by Trump in Syria is now 7. KurdsBetrayedByTrump realDonaldTrump Their deaths are on you. Civil ? What is civil ? civilians with kalashnikovs in their hands ? Look at all the “we hate war” people all of a sudden pissed off because “we aren’t going to war”. Haha. Y’all want Trump to destroy Turkey now? You wanted our troops on the Syrian border? What happened to “the US isn’t the world police?” TrUMpsFaULt

Yalancının Not 'Kurdish'. They're YPG/SDF terrorists. They've killed 7000 'civilians' in Turkey since 1984.

Why? Good we’ve (US) been there long enough. Endless BS. Turks are best suited to fight their borderwar. Good luck. We hope they win and refugees can go back home. Dem bots will want to whine about peaceful exit..go figure Worst trump foreign policy in his term He can’t care less about any of this. realDonaldTrump please wreck their economy now

The blood of 'brothers in arms' who sacrificed so much. AP your are just liar Is this DontheCon’s plan to distract from impeachment news? Is he now going to retaliate? Wagging the dog, I see🤔 Pirate invasion by Erdogan Passa I doubt they are accurately reporting deaths.

realDonaldTrump effectively murdered those people. Sure takes trump’s crimes off the news Way to go realDonaldTrump...pulled out and now our Allies are being killed...success KurdsBetrayedByTrump Trump's place in he just got 7 degrees hotter. How are they going to explain genocide this time? fucked up if true

Damn innocent people being killed all due from a Moron’s decision. Fake news ? Why would any organized army target civillians on purpose

Can’t believe the Republican Party let rrealDonald give up the Kurds so cowardly.... so much for America being “Leader of the Free World” didn't the white house statement they promised not to kill civilians? The PKK is a terrorist organization and violates the fundamental human right, the right to life.

Kurdish officials DO NOT SAY TRUE! They are LİARS!!! 🇹🇷
