Turkish-led
troops made the first significant strategic breakthrough of their
invasion of the Kurdish-held region of Syria on Saturday morning,
entering a border town that had been the focus of a ground war
between Turkey and Kurdish fighters since Wednesday. The Turkish
Defense Ministry announced that its forces had taken part of the
town, Ras al-Ain, which nestles up to the border with Turkey on a

territory. If they capture the entire town, the Turkish forces would
control one of the two main roads that link the major
Kurdish-controlled cities, making it harder for Kurdish forces to
move troops and supplies.
