"At times of this kind of Turkish operation, we as Turkish people feel prouder about our nation. Why? Because it (Turkey) brings peace wherever it goes, because it brings stability wherever it goes. That's why we are proud of this flag."

Turkish forces and Kurdish fighters were battling heavily on Wednesday over the border town of Ras al-Ayn on the Turkey/Syria border.
Turkey had announced it captured the town days ago, but its hold now appears uncertain as the Kurds fight back.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a war monitor, reported that the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) launched a counter-offensive against Turkish troops and Turkey-backed opposition fighters in the town, triggering intense fighting.
The SDF said Kurdish special forces were taking part in the street battles on Wednesday.
Turkey began its military operation against Kurdish fighters in northern Syria a week ago.
