World News: White House: Turkey to begin military operation in Northern Syria

American troops ‘will no longer be in the immediate area’ casting uncertainty on fate of their Kurdish allies.
White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said following a call between President Trump and Turkish President Erdogan, Turkey is to take custody of foreign fighters captured in the US-led campaign against ISIL.
It was not clear whether that meant the US would be withdrawing its 1,000 or so troops completely from northern Syria.
