  • Turkey: at least three people killed by auto bomb in northeastern Syria

Ankara and its Syrian proxies on October 9 launched a cross-border attack against Kurdish fighters in northern Syria after the United States said it would be withdrawing troops from the region.

Pence spoke by phone with Abdul-Mahdi after the Iraqi leader declined an invitation to meet with Pence at the air base when security concerns prevented Pence from traveling into Baghdad. The ministry blamed Syrian Kurdish fighters for the attack, AP reported.

The vice president went on to Erbil in the semi-autonomous Kurdish region in Iraq, seeking to show USA appreciation for Kurdish sacrifices and affirm a message of US support and partnership with Kurdish fighters.

The US is still in Syria, but there's about 100 km gap between Syrian-held Syria and US-held oilfield where Turkey and its rebels are not only free to invade Kurdish-held territory, but to push potentially quite deep into Kurdish territory. "We continue to be concerned about the malign influence of Iran across Iraq", he said.

Kurdish-led fighters sought to fend off Turkish forces and their Syrian proxies near a key town in northern Syria on Saturday, a Britain-based war monitor said. He said the Trump administration is working to secure another pay increase for the armed services and suggested the ongoing impeachment inquiry in Washington was slowing the way.

Luke , 46, had "sexually, physically, verbally, and emotionally abused [her] to the point where [she] almost lost her life". And she definitely took the whole audience right to the church rafters with her soaring vocals and fun moves.

Pence and his wife, Karen, served a traditional Thanksgiving meal of turkey, cranberry sauce and other fixings to some 700 troops at the base, which Trump visited in a similar surprise trip a year ago.

Pence encouraged the Iraqi government to show restraint with the protesters.

Pence and the second lady then served Thanksgiving lunch to US troops before thanking them for their service.

Mr. Pence's trip came 11 months after President Trump made a similar, unannounced visit to Al Asad, just days after announcing that he was pulling American troops out of Syria and Afghanistan.
