After seven years of war, many Syrian children may be seeing their homeland for the first time.
As the war across the border in Syria rages on, there's now an estimated 3.5 million Syrian refugees in Turkey who were threatened with deportation by opposition parties during recent election campaigns.
According to a Russian military official, a preliminary agreement has been reached on the evacuation of Jaish al Islam rebels from Douma, but an opposition official denies this. Meanwhile, members of another rebel group agreed to leave the enclave.
Since Jarablus was cleared of Daesh 12 months ago, the city is slowly rebuilding but faces many challenges.
The city was reduced to rubble in the two years Daesh controlled it and rebuilding efforts have been slow.
TRT World has this exclusive report on the Syrian city of Jarablus, which is rebuilding a year after the Turkish-backed forces liberated it from Daesh militants.
The Syrian opposition-held town of Jarablus is rebuilding itself a year after Operation Euphrates Shield. But FSA factions based there are dealing with new problems.
Turkey's military said not harming civilians is one of its "basic principles." The army was responding to allegations related to its ongoing operation in northern Syria to push Daesh and other terrorist groups away from Turkey's southern border.
The Turkish military says its forces have killed more than 1,300 Daesh members in Syria since Operation Euphrates Shield was launched in August, 2016.
The Turkish military says that 111 Daesh targets were destroyed during the counter-terror operation by the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army.
As Operation Euphrates Shield enters its first month, around 20,000 people have so far returned home to the freed Syrian town of Jarablus.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan discussed terrorism and the situation in Jarablus in an address to regional governors on Thursday, saying no plan is possible in the region without Turkey's consent.
