- Story Text: Explosions were seen in Ras Al Ain on Saturday (October 12) as Turkey's military campaign in Syria moved into its fourth day.
Video footage, filmed from Ceylanpinar, Turkey, shows blasts hitting the Syrian border city, as well as plumes of fiery smoke surging into the sky.
World powers fear Turkey's offensive could open a new phase in Syria's war and deepen regional turmoil.
The incursion launched after Trump withdrew U.S. troops who had been fighting alongside Kurdish forces against Islamic State militants.
