Turkey military pushes farther into Syria

More casualties are being reported in Syria as Turkish forces push deeper in to the country.  The invasion has displaced thousands of residents.  The insurgence began earlier this week when U.S. President Donald Trump pulled forces from the border of the two countries.  Save the Children is asking the federal government to rescue Canadian children.  The 20 kids, most the offspring of parents who went to Syria to fight for the terrorist group ISIS, are being housed in refugee camps.  The Canadian government says it is too dangerous to offer consular assistance.
