Kurds Say Escape Attempt by IS Family Members Contained

Syrian Kurdish officials have said its security agencies contained an apparent escape attempt, Friday, October 11, at a sprawling camp in northeastern Syria, home to thousands of family members of Islamic State militants.

NATO is urging Turkey to exercise restraint in its incursion into northeastern Syria.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg acknowledged Turkey’s legitimate security concerns about the Syrian Kurdish fighters but warned that the offensive could “jeopardize” progress made against the Islamic State terror group.

Stoltenberg spoke at a news conference in Istanbul with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu. Cavusoglu said Turkey expects solidarity from NATO against the threats it faces.
