Turkey-Syria offensive: 'My children became ill from the fear'

A temporary truce has put a end to fierce fighting in northern Syria, after Turkey launched an offensive on 9 October.

Turkey says the move, which took place after a US troop withdrawal, aims to create a 32km (20-mile) 'safe zone' in areas of Kurdish control.
