In northern Syria, the Russia-brokered ceasefire between Turkey and Syrian Kurdish fighters expired Tuesday night, threatening to reignite fighting in the region. The Turkish invasion began after President Trump abruptly withdrew U.S. troops from parts of northern Syria, clearing the way for the Turkish offensive. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan claimed today that Syrian Kurdish fighters had not fully withdrawn from the area near the Turkish border, and said that joint Turkish-Russian patrols would resume border patrols on Friday.
