    > The Turkish president has threatened to "Open the gates" for Syrian refugees in his country to migrate to Europe if the continent's countries label Turkey's military campaign in north-eastern Syria an "Occupation".

    > Gülnur Aybet, one of the Turkish president's senior advisers, told CNN: "President Trump and President Erdo?an have reached an understanding over precisely what this operation is." Aybet added that Trump "Knows what the scope of this operation is".

    > Trump tweeted on Thursday morning that ahead of the Turkish offensive the US had extricated from Kurdish custody two Isis detainees who were members of "The Beatles", a gang of four jailers who were allegedly responsible for the torture and beheading of prisoners, including the American photojournalist James Foley.
