Turkish special forces advanced into northeastern Syria to the east of the Euphrates river, the country’s defence ministry said on Thursday.

Residents were fleeing Tal Abyad and some of them told dpa news agency that civilians who are still inside the city were prevented from leaving by Kurdish fighters.

The International Committee of the Red Cross warned that tens of thousands of people in the area targeted in Turkey’s offensive are at “great risk”.

The UN Security Council is set to meet on Thursday to discuss the situation in Syria.
