Turkish troops are building up at the border with Syria, ahead of a possible offensive against Syrian Kurdish fighters. Military vehicles have been arriving at the border, and a Turkish presidential aide said they would cross into Syria "shortly." This follows the withdrawal of US troops from Kurdish-controlled northern Syria. Turkey considers Kurdish fighters terrorists. It wants to create a safe zone and resettle millions of refugees there. Critics accuse US President Trump of abandoning an ally who fought against the so-called Islamic State based on a phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. They fear the withdrawal could cause more instability in the region.
