As Syrians Flee Turkish Airstrikes, Congressional Leaders Vow Erdogan Will "Pay A Heavy Price"

The Kurdish-led and (formerly) US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces have begun firing back on invading Turkish forces, which are being supported by F-16 jets, already bombarding densely packed civilian areas inside Syria near the border. Now busy defending themselves against Turkish air and ground forces, the SDF has announced "the suspension of all operations against ISIS."

Turkey's Anadolu Agency reports multiple rockets were launched from Kurdish positions in Syria's Qamishli, landing in the center of the Turkish border town of Nusaybin. Turkey will use the Kurdish response as justification for a more aggressive aerial response, with reports suggesting there could already be up to 200 Turkish warplanes in the air currently.

Turkish state media has claimed its invading forces have killed 6 SDF fighters, which it labeled "terrorists", and further cited sporadic shelling on its border towns from SDF positions.
