President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has promised to sweep militants from the length of Turkey's border with Syria with Operation Afrin. Erdogan says Ankara could extend its current military operation in northwest Syria all the way east to the border with Iraq.
At least 18 people have been killed and tens more injured, including civilians, in an explosion in Syria's northwestern city of Idlib. Monitors say the explosion targeted the headquarters of a minor rebel faction in Idlib. It was not immediately clear what the nature of the attack was.
